it is between A and B (because.....one of several clinical research projects that seek is correct)

A sounds better than B and would pick (A).

What is the OA and the correct idiom?

Hi Ravi, are u sure it should be 'seek' and not 'seeks'

I need to know the correct usage.

has to be B, no ways can A be the answer.

"extent to" is the correct idiomatic usage, not "extent that."
