B alters the meaning of the original sentence ? ...we dont have 'may' in the 'B'.
Study is not confirming that the results are 100% acurate.

C is my pick. Vitamin E should use increases not increase. hence left with B and C. Intially I selected B, but on second thought C is the best.

A ..I think. B & C distort the meaning from a 'may be' to a 'certainty'. What is the OA?

When I deal with this question! I initially chose A for a simple reason: A contains MAY while B does not. SUGGEST ... (UNKNOWN - in A) vs. SUGGEST... (KNOWN - in B).
After rethinking I choose B rather than B because B has TAKING VITAMIN sounds better than INTAKE OF.

Well, I lose!

OA is A (Source : MGMAT)
Actual Sentence says that Intake of Vitamin E MAY Actually increase the risk.
B - changes the meaning by saying that Intake Vitamin E Actually increase risk.(it makes the case more certain by removing MAY.)

The OA tells us it is A, but this is incorrect. In the non-underlined portion of the sentence, the pronoun "it", clearly referring to Vitamin E, cannot refer to a noun within a modifier.
