The text is about viewing policy and not about learning policy. C blatantly changes the meaning. Here we have to decide the pronoun reference in favor of officials since the errors per se can not view policy. But more seriously ‘they’ can also refer to the audience, by virtue of proximity. Even then comparison is faulty because, the verb do is missing

But the pity is all the choices are wrong in some way or other. Can this question ever make the GMAT grade?

'they' and 'their' in A & E could refer to audiences or officials. B has pronoun problem. D changes the meaning. C is left behind.

Daag is right. None of the answer choices makes any sense

Daag- i have seen your several past posts.you are doing exceptional job for club students.
in this question guys we are missing the link."They" which is non underline portion.They need a Antecedent ,which isn't in this sentence.errors officials---officials is modified by errors.so it can't be antecedent.then We have to choose the option ,which clearly mention officials with being modified by errors.
C- is doing that job...
correct one.
Meaning is last concept in checking all other concepts.if their is grammatical error in the sentence ,then we have to solve that error before going the meaning part.

C violates a fundamental principle of SC in the GMAT: It must keep the meaning (if the meaning is right)
