My understanding :

Lets make a split : A,D,E n B,C

the stem construction is somewhat like : IF X .................. THEN Y

In the main stem the first half non-underlined portion : .............Companies could save ie in the THEN portion it is ( could save ie could + base form of Verb ) ============= so in the IF portion it should have ( PAST TENSE )

IF (Past tense)....................... THEN ( could + base form of verb)

Thus B,C : ..................providing= eliminated

of A,D,E :

Stem is of the form : Could save by X.................. AND................gain through Y

X & Y = should be Parallel

Preventing Illness : Improved worker perfomance = PARALLELISM MAINTAINED

Leading to E
