further, C is out because "other times" should be "any other times".

I too was searching for "any other times"... however its not present in any of them ... is it not required in D?

(A) One reason why more young people lose their virginity during the summer than at other times of the year undoubtedly is because
(B) If young people lose their virginity more during the summer than other seasons, it is undoubtedly because
(C) One undoubtable reason that young people lose their virginity more during the summer than other times is
(D) One reason more young people lose their virginity during the summer than at other times of the year is undoubtedly that
(E) Young people lose their virginity more often during the summer undoubtedly because, for one reason,

Very good question to understand use of because...

One reason is that...is right. Here because can't be used. So I went to D.

i agree with richardson..it has to be "D"
In "A" and "E" "one reason" and "because" is redundant
"B" i think also has a same effect
"C" has the prob of parallelism

(A) One reason why more young people lose their virginity during the summer than at other times of the year undoubtedly is because - because it self mean reason
(B) If young people lose their virginity more during the summer than other seasons, it is undoubtedly because changes the meaning
(C) One undoubtable reason that young people lose their virginity more during the summer than other times is is school vacation - awkward
(D) One reason more young people lose their virginity during the summer than at other times of the year is undoubtedly that -right
(E) Young people lose their virginity more often during the summer undoubtedly because, for one reason,-- because it self mean reason

OA Is "E"

I dont agree with OA
Again reason cannot come with because ,this is redundant
A,B,E are clearly wrong

C Vs D =>in C One undoubtable reason is incorrect and also than other times is wrong ,
than at other times is correct

OA is D and this is an SC1000 question Q562 OA given is D
hence kindly verify the OA and let us know

What is wrong with B?

Meaning change.

The original sentence states a fact and option B inverts it into a possibility.

For example, 2 sentences.

I 'll go to my friends' house to swim in his swimming pool vs. If i ever go to my friends' house for i want to swim in his swimming pool.

See the difference.

'reason' and 'because' are redundant. So A and E are out.

B and C are awkward.

One reason......that......D it is.

Let me add my 2 cents ...

IMO D

Why is C wrong?
"summer" should be compared with other times of "the year";

Example:
ppl play soccer more during summer. (similar to C) (doesnot reflect an increase in the number of ppl but an increase time spent playing soccer)

more ppl play soccer during summer (similar to D) ( reflects an increase in the number of ppl)

(A) One reason why more young people lose their virginity during the summer than at other times of the year undoubtedly is because
(B) If young people lose their virginity more during the summer than other seasons, it is undoubtedly because
(C) One undoubtable reason that young people lose their virginity more during the summer than other times is

(E) Young people lose their virginity more often during the summer undoubtedly because, for one reason,

reason +that clause
is not logic simply

no grammar books explain this point. simply this phrase is not logic, so never exist in english

for this reason, I do this job

is idiom.

why C is wrong?
more during the summer than other times
I think it is a perfect parallelism

But on the other hand with D
more young people lose their virginity during the summer than at other times
It compares young people... than the other time

thank you
