I misunderstood the subject as 'discolored layer of varnish'.
Its no doubt that they are correct and hence only option left is C.

B. if it is
C. if they are

E. when it is


The answer is E
We need a subject for the sentence to make sense .
Here C is the correct choice
A we need verb
B it can not refer to researchers as they are humans
C correct
D when is wrong as it is used to show time
E same as D and it is wrong .

Hi Karishma,

Can u explain why option B is wrong, In some sentences we dont have any referent for "it" such as "it is difficult to understand why some people behave..."
And can u also explain how can we recognize such difference (where we need to have some referent to "it" vs its correct to have no referent to "it")
