The experts' advice comes to a natural reaction to numerous studies conducted during the past decade that compared Japanese production to supply practices to the rest of the world.

Meaning:

Sentence construction is diffuse so it is quite difficult to gasp intended meaning of the sentence.

It is not clear The experts' advice comes to a natural reaction with what intention? this is the intention of the advice? or reason? role?

Comparison is not clear also.
Japanese production compared to supply practices?
Supply practices compared to the rest of the world?

Errors:

As explained above in Meaning - The main error is sentence construction
Verbs in present simple - so author presernts some fact that comes as advice.
SV pair is in place and agrees in number. The experts' advice - singular - comes - singular

We have to analyse each answer choice carefully and find answer that clearly conveys intended meaning

POE

A) The experts' advice comes to a natural reaction to numerous studies conducted during the past decade that compared Japanese production to supply practices to the rest of the world.

B) The experts' advice comes by a natural reaction to numerous studies conducted during the past decade that compared Japanese production with supply practices in the rest of the world.
(Japanese production is compared to supply practices? - illogical, 'comes by' to me implies that first reactions happen then advice of experts - more or less logical, but elegant)

C) The experts' advice comes as a natural reaction to numerous studies conducted during the past decade that compared Japanese production and supply practices with that of the rest of the world.
(Japanese production and supply practices is compared to production and supply practices of the rest of the world - perfect, but 'that of' singular 'production and supply practices' plural - not agree in number, 'comes as' makes more sence)

D) The experts' advice come as a natural reaction to numerous studies conducted during the past decade that compared Japanese production to supply practices with those of the rest of the world.
(advise - singular, comes - plural don't agree in number, Japanese production is compared to supply practices? and supply practices with those of the rest of the world - illogical)

E) The experts' advice comes as a natural reaction to numerous studies conducted during the past decade that compared Japanese production and supply practices with those of the rest of the world.

Attachment:

E.JPG [ 56.86 KiB | Viewed 749 times ]

Meaning:

1. The experts' advice comes as a natural reaction to numerous studies
2. Studies conducted during the past decade
3. Studies compared Japanese production and supply practices with those of the rest of the world
(production and supply practices - plural refers to those of - plural)

Once again, while reading original sentence we noticed 'compared' clear indicator of comparison.
Compared can come with TO and WITH
We know that compared entities must be logically and grammatically correct.
(A) is out.
(B) compared with - but compared entities are illogical - out
(C) 'that of' pronoun antecedent agreement failure - out
(D) advice come - SV agreement failure - out

E is the answer
