There is no intention involved in the example. It is a matter of coincidence rather that stimulating a stronger understanding happens along with describing the effects.

B) the "cocktail party effect" has stimulated a stronger understanding of aural segregation for years, and so describing -- unparallel

C) the "cocktail party effect", which has stimulated a stronger understanding of aural segregation for years, describes---- correct choice

D) the "cocktail party effect”, which has for years been stimulating a stronger understanding of aural segregation and has described –unparallel

Hi,

A) & E) are wrong because "they" is used incorrectly. "they" can be used only for People.
D) is wordy and incorrect usage of "being".
B) is wrong because the tenses are not parallel. Present perfect is not parallel with simple present.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any further doubts :)

IMO:-C
Choice A:- Usage of "When" is wrong
B:- Studies...... shows -->Wrong SV agreement
C:- Studies have... shown --> Correct and sleek
D:- Wordy
E:- They & Their refers to single noun whereas "they" refers to studies and "their" refers to people.

Experts , plz validate my reasoning.

Many studies of regional cuisines have linked meat-heavy diets to heart disease and shown that for areas in which the local food is primarily vegetarian, the,average life span tends to be longer.

Hence IMHO with (C) for the highlighted errors in the other options...
