(C) exciting.

Leads directly from the form of "fetching".

C as well

Choice C is a participle phrase modifying the subject prize-stock breeding acting as an adjective.

(A) excited not the correct tense
(B) 'it' has no clear referent. excited is the wrong tense
(C) present participle suggests the shows still excit interest. I'll take C.
(D) past tense 'would' suggest the shows no longer excite people.
(E) past perfect tense is wrong

I'll go with C

this was a very simple but very tricky question. exciting is usually used as adjective so we can be tricked. Here exciting is used as a "ing" verb.

and ys OA is C.

(A) exicited
(B) it excited
(C) exciting
(D) would excite

Two major errors - parallelism and the it error.
Parallelism can't get any simpler! Notice the AND list. and be sure that the list is to be completed by the underlined item
-ing verb is required.
Lel me tell you what could go wrong here. One might think saw the emergence and excited are a part of one and list. But in that case, won't there be one more and before fetching? yeah, thats a trap!
One more common error here. I call it the it error. Like in spoken English we use it to describe a clause, the GMAT puts it as a trap because the usage is actually incorrect. I did xyz, it caused him to blah blah. Well, that is totally incorrect! this trap is designed in choice B and E. Technically we say that it refers to no noun in the sentence. and D cannot simple by correct to be used for a past action.

C it is

C. This choice runs parallel with the other -ing forms.
