I know this one has already been discussed, but my doubt has not been clarified yet.
OA is D. However, in D, "they" refers to suppliers (the subject); and that would be incorrect. Could anybody clarify?
Thanks.

To meet the rising marketing demand for fish and seafood, suppliers are
growing fish twice as fast as their natural growth rate, cutting their feed
allotment
by nearly half and raising them on special diets.
A. their natural growth rate, cutting their feed allotment
B. their natural growth rate, their feed allotment cut
C. growing them naturally, cutting their feed allotment
D. they grow naturally, cutting their feed allotment
E. they grow naturally, with their feed allotment cut

I presume, "they" still refers to fish in the above sentence. As per MGMAT convention we can convert each choices as below,

A - wordy/awkward.
B - wordy/awkward
C - altered intent
D - Correct
E - wordy/awkward.

Please let me know, whether the above explanation make sense to you.

I understando why the other options are incorrect, but I want to know why "they" in D refers to fish. As per my understanding "they" refers always to the subject, which in this case is suppliers. This point is what I would like any SC guru to weigh in and clarify.
Many thanks u all.

PS: Im still confused.
