"they" must refer to "supplier", it cannot refers to "fish". "cutting" should be use in the following to modify the technique of grow fish. Choice D is correct one.

c1 : To meet the rapid rising market demand for fish and seafood
c2 : suppliers are growing fish twice as fast as their natural growth rate
c3 : cutting their feed allotment by nearly half
c4: and raising them on special diet.

Also note 1) Suppliers is the subject , are is the verb .
2) Pronoun "Their natural growth rate" , " Their feed allotment " Who's is this their is not clear ?

Does it refer to the suppliers or fish ? However since all answers have this ambiguity ( Looks like pronoun ambiguity is allowed )

Options B , E can be eliminated due to parralelism .
Option C : suppliers are growing fish twice as fast as growing them naturally ??? Doesnt make sense .

Would go with option D since it makes the best sense .

OA D...

To meet the rapidly rising market demand for fish and seafood, suppliers are growing fish (twice as fast as their natural growth rate, )cutting their feed allotment by nearly half and raising them on special diets.

'twice as fast as they grow naturally' - is the perfect fit.

(A) their natural growth rate, cutting their feed allotment
(B) their natural growth rate, their feed allotment cut
(C) growing them naturally, cutting their feed allotment
(D) they grow naturally, cutting their feed allotment
(E) they grow naturally, with their feed allotment cut

growing, cutting and raising - parallel so B & E are out.

left w/ A, C, D
A) fast as rate? rate can be high not fast -OUT
C) growing them naturally - illogical - OUT

Left w/ D!

a. their natural growth rate, cutting their feed allotment
b. their natural growth rate, their feed allotment cut
c. growing them naturally, cutting their feed allotment
d. they grow naturally, cutting their feed allotment
e. they grow naturally, with their feed allotment

Im stuck between C and D.
Cant we say suppliers are
growing fish twice as fast as
growing them(fish)

Subject is suppliers first and then we shift it to fish saying they grow naturally.

Thanks

The comparison marker "twice as fast as" can be used to compare two clauses (verbs) with different subjects. Here the clauses compared are:
1. Suppliers are growing fish.
2. they grow naturally.

(The verbs "are growing" and "grow" are correctly compared.)

C is wrong because the verb "are growing" is wrongly compared to present participle "growing".
If you consider that the second "growing" is also a verb with its helping verb "are" omitted in the second element of comparison, then the meaning would be problematic - the farmers are growing fishes, yet the same fishes grow naturally: this does not make sense.
