"apparent connection" is better than "connection apparent" so eliminate C/E.

"between" is required for idiom "between X and Y" so that leaves D as the correct choice.

I am confused in rules for IF..THEN. MGMAT suggest that IF (present tense) will have 'will' in then clause. I tried using this rule but didn't find a answer choice. Can someone explain why I should not I apply below rule

Sentences that use IF to describe hypothetical situation require a conditional verb construction...IF present then will+base verb

B doesn't look correct. It should be D.

B is incorrect...
As per my source, D is the OA..

the correct idiom is "connection between A and B" .. and not "conntection of A and B"

(B) Should Dr. Wade be right, any apparent connection of eating
(D) If Dr. Wade is right, any apparent connection between eating

Observe the error ?

OA is D. But my question is how is this sentence different from "If he is right then she "will" go to college. In the question then clause has 'is'....

Answer has to be D
We need to use between here and maintain the || structure.
