Tough one...i guess answer should be B. This question has "and" as well as "that"; both of these cause some confusion while selecting the answer.

It is widely believed in the papermaking industry that unless mills run continuously, a firm cannot make money and waste, estimated at 30% of overall mill cost, resulting from changing products 'on the run' is inevitable while the machine is achieving 'on grade' performance.

Considering after the underline part, it begins with verb "is" so we should expect noun that is placed before it. Therefore A, B and D are out because it fell into absolutely wrong structure.

E out since it lacks of noun to complete the sentence.

Left only C correct

A.a firm cannot make money and waste, estimated at 30% of overall mill cost, resulting from changing products 'on the run' is

B. a firm cannot make money and waste resulting from changing products 'on the run', estimated at 30% of overall mill cost is

C. a firm cannot make money and that waste, estimated at 30% of overall mill cost and resulting from changing products 'on the run',

D. money cannot be made by a firm and waste, estimated at 30% of overall mill cost, resulting from changing products 'on the run' is

E. that a firm cannot make money and that waste, estimated at 30% of overall mill cost, resulting from changing products 'on the run'
