The recent clinical trials have revealed

that 'collapsed-arch' condition of the human's feet, the same as the one causing the feet to over pronate, putting strain on muscles, joints, and tendons of the lower legs, is also providing extra stability
that reduces the likelihood of turning or spraining the ankle in a fall.

the same as the one causing the feet to over pronate, putting strain on muscles, joints, and tendons of the lower legs this sentence requires a verb

A.
B. feet - of the same condition that causes the feet to over pronate, putting strain on muscles, joints, and tendons of the lower legs - also providing
this option has wrong llism. it seems that providing is parallel with putting.
C. feet are the same as those that cause the feet to over pronate, putting strain on muscles, joints, and tendons of the lower legs, and also provide
those is referring to condition which is singular
D. feet - the same condition that causes the feet to over pronate, putting strain on muscles, joints, and tendons of the lower legs - also provides
E. feet, which is the same as the one that causes the feet to over pronate to put strain on muscles, joints, and tendons of the lower legs, also provide

Hi
I thought the one here is ambiguous. what does it refer to in original sentence is not clear. pronoun and modifier.

A. the same as the one causing the feet to over pronate, putting strain on muscles, joints, and tendons of the lower legs
which one is referring to feet or condition. (eliminate c and e too).
B. feet - of the same condition that causes the feet to over pronate, putting strain on muscles, joints, and tendons of the lower legs - also providing
of the same condition is modifying feet.
C. feet are the same as those that cause the feet to over pronate, putting strain on muscles, joints, and tendons of the lower legs, and also provide
those might refer to feet or condition
D. feet - the same condition that causes the feet to over pronate, putting strain on muscles, joints, and tendons of the lower legs - also provides
clear noun condition.
E. feet, which is the same as the one that causes the feet to over pronate to put strain on muscles, joints, and tendons of the lower legs, also provide
which is modifying the feet
provide should be provides

In my opinion, this answer choice can also be written as
feet - the same condition causing the feet to over pronate, putting strain on muscles, joints, and tendons of the lower legs - also providing

A. wrong because here "the one causing is ambiguous". Moreover, is also providing - makes no sense with condition.
B. wrong because also providing leaves a sentence as fragment. " that 'collapsed-arch' condition of the human's feet also providing extra stability"
C. wrong because condition should be followed by provides not provide.
D. Chosen one.
E. wrong because condition should be followed by provides "collapsed-arch' condition also of the human's feet provide"

This question basically tests your knowledge in Modifier, to verb, SV agreement and tenses. I got answer right in around 2.10 mins. I feel this question is of 600-700 level not sub 600 level
