    You can't say "In order easily to..." and with so in the second part the sentence doesn't mean anything.

    Re: Question

    Where do these sentences come from? None of the alternatives are correct. The closest would be:
    In order to induce witnesses to testify easily, they are conducting their hearings in private.
    compare:
    In order easily to induce witnesses to testify, so they are conducting their hearings in private.

    ...which is alternative C.

    No, it's a bit tortured to say the least, but it was the only option that worked at all.
