ANS IS C

first THING TO NOTE HERE IS THE USE OF ''THAT'' it helps maintain the paralle constructio...

so B and C are in ...between B and C ..the later ( C) is better cos it is more clear and perfectly uses the ''THAT I ndividual Consumers will exceed ''

hope that helps !

HAVE FUN

1:05 , went with C. ( most parallel)

A "less likely" is modifying individuals , therefore wrong

B has "a variety of sweeteners available individual consumers" .There should have been a comma after available

D "less likely" is modifying individuals , therefore wrong

E "less likely with various sweeteners ", awkard and wrong

B. that with a variety of sweeteners available individual consumers will less likely exceed

is available modifying sweeteners or individual customers ?

I think B is wrong.
