What is the antecedent of 'it'? Only C looks clear and good to me. Experts-could you please explain-Chetan2u/Daagh/Sayantan

I also Chose C.
In option D, "it" seems to have two antecedents and thus becomes ambiguous.
1. The repetition of a specific action.
2. Specific action.

Experts please help. Thanks

a, the repetition of a specific action again and again until it is

'repetition' and 'again' convey the same meaning, thus it is redundant.

b, specific actions until they are

this choice changes meaning by crossing out 'repetition'

c, the repetition of a specific action until that action has been

Looks good to me but I don't think present perfect is needed

d, the repetition of a specific action until it is

Though 'it' seems ambiguous, pronoun ambiguity is not an absolute rule in SC. Thus, it is the best choice

e, repeating a specific action again and again until it is

As in A, 'repeating' and 'again' convey the same meaning. it is redundant.

Logically, "it" will refer to "specific action" only. Note that pronoun ambiguity should be the last decision point.
Option (C) is incorrect because you need to use simple present here.
The first part of the sentence "The learning process often requires ..." uses simple present. Hence rest of it will use the same tense since the whole sentence is giving a fact.

My this week's blog post will discuss the issue of pronoun ambiguity.

Hi VeritasPrepKarishma

Doesn't the pronoun "it" makes the statement ambiguous because it has no clear referent. I eliminated D because it isn't clear whether the pronoun "it" referes to "learning process" or whether it refers to "action"

Logically, only "action" can be repeated again and again as a part of a process. Also, "pronoun ambiguity" should be considered at the end. Check this post for more:
