(A) achieving a consistency of quality and production in farm animals as once thought to be
(B) achieving farm animals with a consistency of quality and production as were once thought of as - achieving farm animals sounds awkward
(C) achieving in farm animals a consistency of quality and production that was once thought to be - correct
(D) achievement of farm animals whose consistency of quality and production are the same as what were once thought to be
(E) achievement of farm animals at a consistency of quality and production once thought of as

achievement of farm animals in D and E also seems to be awkward

I agree with C but I could not figure out a grammatical error in A. Can someone please shed some light on (A)?

Actually Im with A. What has been achieved is the consistency, not the farm animals. A is the only option in which this is correct.

Can anybidy explain this?

I was confused b/w A and C and without replacing the options in the original sentence, I marked A , my bad. I think C is correct:

We have to read the introductory clause very carefully. I think the meaning of the sentence is - Scientists are approaching to implement the consistency (which was limited to manuf) also in farm animals. Let's plug-in A and C:

A) With cloning technology, scientists are approaching...goal: achieving a consistency of quality and production in farm animals as once thought to be limited to manufactured goods. [Meaning is changed here]

C) With cloning technology, scientists are approaching...goal: achieving in farm animals a consistency of quality and production that was once thought to be limited to manufactured goods.
[Use of the restrictive clause THAT is correct here to adhere to the correct meaning]
