It should be E

A, B and D say dormant virus is a type. It is 'OF' a type, not a type. in C, pronoun 'it' and 'one' both refer to the dormant virus so there is redundant usage.

A. that they believe is

B. that they believe it to be

C. they believe that it is of

D. they believe that is

E. that they believe to be of - Correct

C. they believe that it is of
D. they believe that is
E. that they believe to be of

E fixes the comparison error by stating that the virus believed to be of a type and not 'is' a type. The pronoun it has been removed.

Hi all,

I have one question, in choice E, is n't one and that redundunt?

wouldn't choice E have been more perfect, had it read like this, "Scientists at the state medical research facility have discovered a dormant virus, one they believe to be of a type previously unknown to medical science"

Experts please help, because i saw a similiar question which eliminated choices with "one that...". Not able to recollect the exact question.

Thanks
