Hi, :)

we are talking about the way of acting in a specific manner

for instance i can`t say: i am making notes to improve a learning experience and doing it i set examples for other - "it" referes to what ? hence we need to say "doing so/acting so it rewards the child for the inappropriate behaviour

hope it helps :-)

'It' can only refer to nouns or other pronouns. 'It' cannot refer to actions. Here 'it' refers to the practice of the parents, which is not right usage. Thus, Doing it is wrong usage. Instead, use doing so.

in this B is ambiguous because of IT and D is the correct answer. Rest of the options are plain wrong.
