SC: Correct though it may seem

    Correct though it may seem, the problem with the theory is that it treats several other explanations as unreasonable, which are all in fact quite possible.

    (A) Correct though it may seem, the problem with the theory is that it treats several other explanations as unreasonable, which are all in fact quite possible.

    (B) Even though it seems correct, the problem with the theory is that it treats several other explanations as unreasonable, when they are really quite possible.

    (C) Though possibly correct, the problem with the theory is that it treats several other explanations as unreasonable when in fact they are possible.

    (D) Though the theory seems correct, its problem is that it treats as unreasonable several other explanations that are actually quite possible.

    (E) The problem with the theory, which seems correct, is its treating several other explanations as unreasonable when in fact they are actually possible.

    On the GMAT, POSSESSIVE + VERBing + DIRECT OBJECT is not a viable structure.
    I discuss this issue here:
    http://www.beatthegmat.com/ing-form-t276835.html

    E: The problem with the theory is its treating several other explanations as unreasonable.
    Here, the structure in red -- POSSESSIVE + VERBing + DIRECT OBJECT -- is not viable.
    Eliminate E.
