When you have such doubts, take the replacement test.

Original C) the zoo is currently housing its lions in an environment that it specially designed to mimic their natural habitat.

Modified: 1.the zoo is currently housing its lions in an environment that the zoo specially designed to mimic their natural habitat.
Modified: 2. the zoo is currently housing its lions in an environment that the environment specially designed to mimic their natural habitat.
Which is more logical now? You can see there is no need for any ambiguity doubt. In C, the ‘it’ does refer to the zoo only.


Hello Sir - can you please explain what is wrong with option B - is it just wordy or anything else is wrong?
Thanks

Can anyone explain why there is a need of present progressive in C?

I would have definitely picked up C, had it been like this, "the zoo currently houses its lions in an environment that it specially designed to mimic their natural habitat. ".

Experts please help

Isn't the "IS" missing?
