Hello Saudkhan.

E is wrong because it changes meaning.

The intended meaning is: The innovative therapeutical program and its newest user interface module include several modifications...... It means modifications are just added to current the program.
E, however, says "The innovative therapeutical program and its newest user interface module are modifications...... Clearly, the program and its user interface CAN'T be modifications. It's meaningless.

Hope it helps.

Hi goodyear2013,

Thank you for your question. Let's go through the answers, one problem at a time, and narrow things down to find the right answer!

The first major difference between each answer is how they begin: by either referring to a singular or plural subject.

We know the subject is plural (The innovative therapeutical program and its newest user interface module), so we need to get rid of any answers that use the wrong verb tense or refer to a singular subject:

A) includes several groundbreaking modifications through which parent and child explore stunning 3-D landscapes and solve challenging emotional and interpersonal scenarios (WRONG = plural subject + singular verb)
B) include several groundbreaking modifications enabling both parent and child to explore stunning 3-D landscapes and to solve challenging emotional and interpersonal scenarios (OK = plural subject + plural verb)
C) include several groundbreaking modifications through which parent and child explore stunning 3-D landscapes and solves challenging emotional and interpersonal scenarios (OK = plural subject + plural verb)
D) is a tool with which parent and child explore stunning 3-D landscapes and solve challenging emotional and interpersonal scenarios, using the groundbreaking modifications included (WRONG = plural subject + singular verb)
E) are groundbreaking modifications through which parent and child explore stunning 3-D landscapes and solve challenging emotional and interpersonal scenarios (OK = plural subject + plural verb)

Let's rule out answers A & D because they use singular verbs to refer to a plural subject.

Now that we're left with B, C, & E, let's focus on finding any problems with each answer:

B) include several groundbreaking modifications enabling both parent and child to explore stunning 3-D landscapes and to solve challenging emotional and interpersonal scenarios

Answer B is CORRECT because it uses proper subject-verb agreement, there is no change in meaning, and it uses parallel format.

C) include several groundbreaking modifications through which parent and child explore stunning 3-D landscapes and solves challenging emotional and interpersonal scenarios

Answer C is INCORRECT because it doesn't use parallel format: both verbs need to be plural to refer back to "parent and child."

E) are groundbreaking modifications through which parent and child explore stunning 3-D landscapes and solve challenging emotional and interpersonal scenarios

Answer E is INCORRECT because it changes the meaning of the original sentence. In the original sentence, the therapeutic program and new module include modifications, meaning that the modifications are only a part of both, not ALL of both.
