C traditional methods for diagnosis and homeopathic pharmaceuticals are relied upon exclusively, these interventions are not always

D homeopathic pharmaceuticals and traditional methods for diagnosis are relied upon exclusively, these interventions were not always

E homeopathic pharmaceuticals and traditional methods for diagnosis are relied upon exclusively, not always are they


First analyse the if then construct rule

IF present tense THEN present tense/future tense

If you look at D usage of were is not correct as it is stated in past tense

Now look at A and D what does they refer to doctors or traditional methods ?? Creating ambiguity .Eliminate

In B usage of this makes no sense at all

Hence correct answer is C

A traditional methods for diagnosis and homeopathic pharmaceuticals are relied upon exclusively, they will not always be
--Ambiguous "they". It could refer to the doctors or to both the methods.

B homeopathic pharmaceuticals and traditional methods for diagnosis are relied upon exclusively, this will not always be
--SV disagreement. "this" should be replaced by "these"

C traditional methods for diagnosis and homeopathic pharmaceuticals are relied upon exclusively, these interventions are not always
--Correct

D homeopathic pharmaceuticals and traditional methods for diagnosis are relied upon exclusively, these interventions were not always
--"were not" is wrong tense. We need a present tense or future tense

E homeopathic pharmaceuticals and traditional methods for diagnosis are relied upon exclusively, not always are they
--Same error as in A

C traditional methods for diagnosis and homeopathic pharmaceuticals are relied upon exclusively, these interventions are not always

D homeopathic pharmaceuticals and traditional methods for diagnosis are relied upon exclusively, these interventions were not always

E homeopathic pharmaceuticals and traditional methods for diagnosis are relied upon exclusively, not always are they

This question is based on the rule of IF...THEN... construct
IF present tense THEN present/future tense

D is straight elimination
In B what doe this refer to ... totally illogical
in E usage of they is not clear whether referring to doctors or homeopathic pharmaceuticals and traditional methods
same is the case with A

C is clear winner as it explicitly mentions
these interventions removing any scope of ambiguity
