E. at least 2.5 hours of aerobic exercise per week, in order that one reduce one's


Imo E

"2.5 or even more than 2.5 hours is redundant " in the original choice so drop A and B (B changes meaning though)
We have to use correct pronoun for one so C and D are out
E corrects these errors

E. at least 2.5 hours of aerobic exercise per week, in order that one reduce one's


IMO ans is E.
A. Incorrect: '2.5 or even more than 2.5 hours' is wordy
B. Incorrect: 'more than 2.5 hours' changes meaning
C. Incorrect: pronoun error 'their'
D. Incorrect: pronoun error 'his'
E. Correct: 'at least 2.5 hours' is concise and no pronoun error, 'one's' is correctly used pronoun for 'one'.

option E is correct.

This answer choice corrects the redundancy of the phrase 2.5 or more than 2.5 while adhering to the rule: the pronoun one agrees with itself only.

Quote:
A. 2.5 or even more than 2.5 hours of aerobic exercise per week, in order that one reduce one's
Here the element "2.50 or even more than 2.50 hours" is wordy. We can define it concisely by using "at least 2.50 hours". So rejected.

Quote:
B. more than 2.5 hours of aerobic exercise per week, in order that one reduce one's
Here the intended meaning is distorted. The main sentence tells that adults need at least 2.50 hours, but this choice tells that adults need more than 2.50 hours. Rejected.

Quote:
C. at least 2.5 hours of aerobic exercise per week, in order that one reduce their
Here the redundancy error has been corrected, but we have a wrong pronoun here i.e. "their". A plural pronoun(their) can't define a singular noun(one). Rejected.

Quote:
D. at least 2.5 hours of aerobic exercise per week, in order that one reduce his
Here we have a pronoun error. His can't define the noun "one" as it's gender biased.

Quote:
E. at least 2.5 hours of aerobic exercise per week, in order that one reduce one's
This option seems perfectly fine.

So the correct answer is E.
