transformation is singular. Hence "is" should be used. A,C and E remain.

A - is wrong. not clear what "they" refer to.

C - "it" ?

E is clear and correct.

Will go with 'E"

In A, B and C "they" and "it' is ambiguous and in D "are" is used when we are talking about transformation which is singular.

OA is E .

OE :-

E is the correct answer. Let us examine the changes among the answer choices. The most striking change has to be is or are. We know that there is a Subject-Verb problem here. Since the subject transformation is singular, we can automatically eliminate B and D, which bear the inappropriate are. This is also a Pronoun problem since we also have they or it in the last clause of the sentence. Since in this part of the sentence we are clearly discussing labor and management, the it in C is inappropriate, and we can eliminate that answer choice. E is better than A because the present continuous tense in A (they are acting) is unnecessary and both of these groups is less ambiguous than the they in A.
