D?

1. "as a demonstration of" and "as demonsrating" are wrong. B and C are off.

2. D is best in the rest for preserving the tense. shoots-proves.

Yups D is the OA
I agree that D maintains parallelism. But is "proved helpful in demonstrating" as used in D idiomatic. I thought A sounded better there..

I would choose D too.

Stuti,
"proved helpful in demonstrating" is not mentioned in D.

I have based my answer on the parallism of shoots - proves.

I think it should be E, the idom is helpful in demonstrating. itself in D I am not sure, does it refecr to the fact or canon.
BTW what is the source of this question?
Thanks

Is it the canon that proves itself helpful in demonstrating the damage or the act of shooting??

D sound like canon...proves itself helpful...?

Can you elaborate on the structure of this sentence?
