This is what the testmakers want you to think!

Just get your fundamentals strong. For example, if they were, you would eliminate A due to redundancy, as remarked above!

a. While diabetes does not interfere with digestion, on the other hand, it does prevent the body from converting an important product of digestion, glucose, which is commonly known as sugar, into energy.

The correct idiomatic expression is -

on the one hand...on the other hand........

b. Diabetes does not interfere with digestion, but it does prevent the body from using glucose, which is commonly known as sugar, which is a product of digestion and which is converted into energy. - Wordy and Awkward.

c. Commonly known as sugar, glucose is an important product of digestion, which is prevented from being converted by the body into energy by diabetes, although diabetes does not interfere with digestion. - Run On + Incorrect.

d. Diabetes does not interfere with digestion, but it does prevent the body from converting an important product of digestion, glucose (commonly known as sugar), into energy.

It - clearly refers to Diabetes

Prevent X from Y - Correct idiom used.

e. Diabetes does not interfere with digestion, but glucose (commonly known as sugar) is an important product of digestion and is unable to be converted into energy by the body because of the disease. - Incorrect.

Once again wonderfully explained by sagarsir
