rest adequately and race on synthetic surfaces must be same tense

also, since this is talking about the future the ending must be they are less likely to sustain an injury or illness than

+1 for E.

A tough problem.

if show-horses rest adequately between competitions and raced on synthetic surfaces => To maintain tense consistency of correlative actions, it should be either rested and raced or rest and race - A and B are out.

C and D are out because they suggest that the action has actually happened.

Left with E.

Representing consequence so less likely is correct

A simple thumb rule is that in cases of conditional sentences involving universal or factual happenings, the conditional sub clause will be represented by the simple present tense of the verb, while the main clause will be fixed with either a simple present or the simple future.

As per this copy- book style, E is the only fitting answer

Look at this link with a similar format of which I think this is a simulation a-study-commissioned-by-the-department-of-agriculture-showed-91173.html

A good concept to remember

Studies on thoroughbred racing displayed that if show-horses rest adequately between competitions and raced on synthetic surfaces, they will be less likely to sustain an injury or illness than do those exhausted from rigorous training schedules.

If (simple present tense),then (simple present/future)

A. raced on synthetic surfaces, they will be less likely to sustain an injury or illness than do
rest and raced ; not parallel ; Incorrect

B. raced on synthetic surfaces, they are less likely to sustain an injury or illness than
rest and raced ; not parallel ; Incorrect

C. race on synthetic surfaces, they sustained fewer injuries or illnesses than do
do not follow if,then structure ; Incorrect

D. race on synthetic surfaces, they have been less likely to sustain an injury or illness than do
do not follow if,then structure ; Incorrect

E. race on synthetic surfaces, they are less likely to sustain an injury or illness than
Correct

I am confused b/w 'than' and 'than do'

They..... than those exhausted from rigorous training schedules.
They ...(sustain) than do(sustain) those

How do we make comparision ?

Experts pls help

parallelism is the main issue here.
between X and Y
X than Y
