Can you help me to understand B vs E?
Are not noting and promoting both acting as coma + verb-ing modifiers correct?

(A) and he notes that these conditions can, and sometimes are, used in the promotion of surgery which is not needed -> should be “can be used”

(B) noting that these conditions can be, and sometimes are, used to promote needless surgery-> correct

(C) and notes that they could and sometimes are used unnecessarily in promoting surgery -> what does “they” refer to?

(D) sometimes promoting needless surgery -> meaning change

(E) which they use sometimes to promote unnecessary surgery -> same as C

Do you mean B vs. D? Because E has an incorrect they (conditions?) in it.

Option D could mean that John Smith (by providing information on the conditions...) is promoting "needless surgery".

Hi I understand the SC part of it but can anyone explain what this means. John provides information on some conditions, noting that these conditions can sometimes be used to promote needless surgery.

Does , noting here imply that John provides information by noting or does it tell us the impact of this information?

Can anyone help AjiteshArun
