i would opt for B

reasons:
choice is between a,b and c. D and E modify the meaning of the sentence. i think B is the most parallel(heart's output --- and intellectual vigor) and concise option. also i feel the prepositional phrases 'under stress' and 'of the heart ' both should modify output but in this case 'under stress' might be modifying heart instead of output.

The answer given is C, which does not make sense to me.

Both option A and C are the same. I believe, 'X and Y' is same as 'Y and X'.

I prefer B because the "capabilities" in the sentence refers to "the output" and "vigor".

Any comments as to why option C could be correct ?

now, as you have given the answer, I see why C is correct in comparison with B. The subject in C is Heart, but in B it 's Output. So, the capability of the Heart should be considered.

FYI...OG and PR state that ..don't choose the sentence that has ..'s.. if you can avoid this with some other --better-- choice...

C - intellectual vigor and the output of the heart under stress
D - intellectual vigor and the effect of stress on the hesrt's output
E - the effect of stree on the heart's output and the intellectual vigor

I believe C is correct. The meaning is: 2 capabilities including output AND interlactual vigor.
A wrong because it misleading output under BOTH stress AND intellectual vigor
B suffers the same problem
D "the effect..." is not capability
E the same as D.

Why is C correct and A not correct?

They say the same things - Orange and Apples to Apples and Oranges.

Thanks,
CJ

Options A and C are not the same. I too was initially confused between the two. Option A says that the "ouput of the heart" is "under stress and intellectual vigor", which is wrong.
Option C correctly says that the important capabilities are "intellectual vigor" and "the ouput of the heart under stress".
hope this helps...

You're right; I certainly hope GMAC doesn't include questions like this one on the GMAT, but we all I know I'm just wishfully thinking.

Thanks for clarification.
