Imo B
As "greater impact" sounds more reasonable than "higher impact"

IMO E.

Split: increases vs increase.
Here the subject is "Running" so it agrees with "increases".
This eliminates options A, B, C.

"levels of stamina" vs "stamina levels".
I feel "stamina levels" is precise.
This eliminates option D.

“That” refers to “activities” so “increase” should be in plural form.
So eliminate D, and E.
For A and B, it was unclear what “it” refers to so I chose C, which conveys clearer meaning.

Answer C

But 'although' doesn't make sense

+1 for C.

A. increase cardiovascular performance but should be performed regularly as it will have a higher impact on levels of stamina -->Incorrect

B. increase cardiovascular performance but should be performed regularly as it will make a greater impact on stamina level -->Incorrect

C. increase cardiovascular performance although it should be performed regularly as doing so will have a higher impact on stamina levels --> Correct

D. increases cardiovascular performance but should be performed regularly as doing so will have a higher impact on levels of stamina -->Incorrect

E. increases the cardiovascular performance but should be performed regularly as doing so will have a higher impact on stamina levels -->Incorrect

P.S. : Subject here is activities , therefore increase, and not running :thumbup:

C.

Activities that - therefore, increase (plural)
'it' ambiguous in A and B, could refer to Running and cardio vascular performance.
In C it is clear that 'it' refers to an activity (Running, in this case). Hence, C.

OA: C
Quote:
D. increases cardiovascular performance but should be performed regularly as doing so will have a higher impact on levels of stamina

E. increases the cardiovascular performance but should be performed regularly as doing so will have a higher impact on stamina levels


D and E eliminated as
one of the + plural noun + who/which/that Should be followed by plural verb.
That here refers to activities, so usage of increases is wrong.

Quote:
A. increase cardiovascular performance but should be performed regularly as it will have a higher impact on levels of stamina

B. increase cardiovascular performance but should be performed regularly as it will make a greater impact on stamina level


In Option A and B, plural verb form increase is used.
but here if we replace pronoun "it" with "running", Intended meaning of the sentence is not getting clearly conveyed.

A. Running is one of the activities that greatly increase cardiovascular performance but should be performed regularly as running will have a higher impact on levels of stamina

B. Running is one of the activities that greatly increase cardiovascular performance but should be performed regularly as running will make a greater impact on stamina level.

running will have a higher impact on levels of stamina [than ????].

Quote:
C. increase cardiovascular performance although it should be performed regularly as doing so will have a higher impact on stamina levels

In Option C, plural verb form increase is used.
if we replace "it" with "running",we get

C. Running is one of the activities that greatly increase cardiovascular performance although running should be performed regularly as doing so will have a higher impact on stamina levels

Option C is able to convey intended meaning.i.e running regularly will have higher impact than running on stamina levels.

"It" in option A and B , IMO, placeholders. Moreover just because of pronoun ambiguity is it safe to eliminate two options?
GMATNinja could you please share your opinion.
