C. 'What "scientists" refers to' in the preceding modifiing phrase? Harmone. nope. so D is wrong.

D also changes the meaning. What had to be removed? A synthetic growth harmon or harmon? harmon.

So C is correct in delivering the correct sense.

(c)

Original sentence never indicated that actually scientists had to remove it painstakingly....

in that rest all other choices seem to change the meaning of original sentence.

This is a good question. I was stuck between C and E.

I chose C, but I do not know why E is incorrect. Anyone?

can't you rule out any answer choice with the word "synthesize" in it?

isn't there a diff between "making a synthetic growth hormone" and "synthesizing a growth hormone" ?

IMO C. You need simple past verb + had construction here!
