seems like E to me..

Use of Allows is correct, The design...allows it....
E most effectively conveys this message (Cause and effect)

D. allows that it can draw in its exposed parts, and so
E. allows it to draw in its exposed parts, so that

My pick is E:

First, "The particular design of..." is singular, so the verb "allow" needs to be "allows" to agree. This leaves C, D, and E.
Second, the pronoun "it" should be as close to "the turtle" as possible. In C and D, "for" and "that" make the "it" ambiguous I think.
Also, in C, "and that" changes the mean....it should be "allows it to do something so that..."
D just sounds like an awkward sentence.

D
SV :
The particular design -allows
=> A,B are out
allows -it
=>C out

E changes the meaning of the sentence
So that implies "because"
The particular design of muscles and bones in the neck and limbs of the turtle allows it to draw in its exposed parts, because an attacker can find nothing but hard shell to bite

The purpose of the design is to protect the turtle from attackers.The meaning is clearly captured in D

You just amaze me...I mean do you score like 41/41 in verbal? ....

I always thought 'so' is used to indicate an effect. Option D is from the turtles perspective and E is from the attackers perspective, how do you say that it changes the meaning?
