I think it is E.

Initially, narrow it down to D and E by the verb agreement "projects" with "group".
Between D and E, E is better since it is average "between", and not average "from".

Idiomatic error introduced along with original error of subject-verb agreement. :wink:

It should be "D". In E there is incorrect usage of 'of' and 'between' together.

E.

narrowed it down to D and E because of "a group ... projects". Then picked E, because didn't like D for using "projects global warming to average", should be "projects a global warming averaging..", thus E

E for me.
In D, ...group projects X to average...does not sound right.

We require singular verb ,so A B C are out ,between D and E ,I will go for D .
In E sentence seems imcomplete

I retract .On careful examination ,E looks best .The intended meaning is clear from between .from construction in D gives meaning that global warming average will start from 1.8 and end at 6.3

A. project an average global warming that will be between 1.8 and
B. project an average global warming to be from 1.8 to
C. project global warming that will average between 1.8 and
D. projects global warming to average from 1.8 to
E. projects an average global warming of between 1.8 and


"An international group of.... projects", so A,B,C are out
between D and E. Both looks ok to me, however, assuming that original meaning of the sentence doesn't contain any obvious errors, I would like to preserve the original meaning

I would pick E.

D seems that the average will be raising from 1.8 to 6.3
but E is telling me that the average will be between 1.8 and 6.3

E -Wrong - between 1.8 and 6.3 is correct (only if these two values are present). But, we have from 1.8, 1.9, 2.0, 2.1 to 6.3
D -Correct. Uses From to correctly. Also shortest.

E for me as well. Use of singular verb keep out A, B and C. Between D and E. D has incorrect use of average.

D does not have the same effect as original 'A' intended. Even though E is strange, I prefer E.

This sentence can be read as :

"An international group...projects...Y"
We need "projects" here because "group" is singular.
So that leaves to D and E.

D would have been the answer if it had been " projects global warming to average X"
You cannot specify a range after the "to average" in D.

So that leaves E where "between" is used correctly.
