OE

The correct response is (C).

For clarity, a lengthy and confusing description like this one requires a relative clause, “the researcher’s theory that...” The subject-verb structure of the clause clearly identifies “the researcher’s theory” A series of phrases, on the other hand, provides neither the same clarity nor grammatical correctness.

Hi!

Isn't it incorrect to remove information from the question statement. Like in this case we are removing "in the body". Please clarify!

rever08, the short answer is no. Answer choice A is no more the correct/original version than any other. Having said that, we would usually only see a specific phrase such as "in the body" in some choices and not others if either a) it was clearly wrong or redundant or b) it was definitely needed to make the meaning clear.

I don't think this one fits either case. Since it's removed in the credited answer, the author clearly doesn't think it's needed. However, I'm not sure we can say it's wrong/redundant. Sure, all of our feelings occur within our body, but "in the body" might help to clarify what we're talking about. Otherwise, we might just think the researcher is saying that we have feelings about certain chemicals.
