I read the question several times before to come to wich is the real gist of the problem :-D : is the problem itself.

The problem with the theory is really really bad to say. Moreover, in A B and C the modifiers modify the problem but indeed they should the theory. The theory itself has a probem. It is a mess.....

D is the only phrase of our ball park that conveys the meaning in the right manner

D it is

Hard one it is. I had to choose between the last two options. I picked E and in retrospect, it seems incorrect. D has a strange ring to it though.

IMO D, please find the explanation below:

Correct though it may seem, the problem with the theory is that it treats several other explanations as unreasonable, which are all in fact quite possible.

(A) Correct though it may seem, the problem with the theory is that it treats several other explanations as unreasonable, which are all in fact quite possible......This option seems to convey that "The Problem with the theory" may be correct not the theory itself, this is not the intended meaning. Also "which" should touch the noun it modifies.

(B) Even though it seems correct, the problem with the theory is that it treats several other explanations as unreasonable, when they are really quite possible.......Same problem as Option A.This option seems to convey that "The Problem with the theory" may be correct not the theory itself, this is not the intended meaning. Also "When" is used to modify time.

(C) Though possibly correct, the problem with the theory is that it treats several other explanations as unreasonable when in fact they are possible.......This option has same problems as Option B.

(D) Though the theory seems correct, its problem is that it treats as unreasonable several other explanations that are actually quite possible....... Correct Option. This option conveys rightly that theory may be is correct.

(E) The problem with the theory, which seems correct, is its treating several other explanations as unreasonable when in fact they are actually possible......."When" is used to modify time.

could eliminate right from the start the options which had "the problem seems correct". After that...the above mentioned in bold made me decide which one to choose.



Hope I am correct :)

I will vote for D.

Choice A, B, and C are modifying the problem instead of the theory. In answer choice E, the modifier is modifying the theory but the construction of the sentence is awkward.

Even I feel it is D.
A,B, C modifies the modifies the "problem", not the theory.
And E just sounds awkward because of the part " is its treating several other explanations".

very easy question. It is not the problem which seems correct, it is the theory which seems correct.

Once you get this logic we can straightly lead up to option D as the correct answer.
