(A) in part that their steers should acquire certian characterstics
(B) in part for the acquistion of certain characterstics in their steers
(C) partly because of their steers acquiring certain characterstics --change the meaning of orignal sentence.
(D) partly because certian charactrstics should be acquired by their steers --passive voice
(E) partly to acquire certain characterics in their steers


I pick E

I will go with C

A and B are obviously wrong as pointed out by you. For me E is not parallel partlly to.... partly because

C appear to be the best answer

I go with E, though both E and C make sense ... it is POSSIBLE, that they cross-breed to reduce characteristics that have emerged.

But I guess pick the best answer.

E is correct.

C changes the meaning of the sentence. C makes it sound like the cattle breeders are using crossbreeding because of their steers acquiring certain characterstics.

They are using crossbreeding to acquire the characterstics.

Will go for 'E'

Parallelism - to acquire ....and to provide
