MGMAT Explanation:
well, d has two problems, at least:
- 'projects X to do Y' is unidiomatic. (you can just say 'projects NOUN', as is done in choice e, or you can say something like 'projects that X will do Y').
- an average is a single data point, so there's no such thing as 'averag[ing] from 1.8 to 6.3'. on the other hand, it's quite possible for a single data point to fall between two given values.

(D) projects global warming to average from 1.8 to

please explain ..

Group is collective noun so projects...
between d and E i will go with E though "of" is awkward because in D pronoun "from" is wrong....it should be between...


This particular problem is of Subject Verb Relationship. Here the "Internation Group" is singular so its verb (Projects) should also be singular.
It eliminate choices A, B, C.
In 'D', "Warming to" is not idiomatic correct.

An international group.... projects (proper S-V agreement)
an average global warming......between 1.8 and 6.3 (between x and y)
rather than,
projects global warming ....... from 1.8 to 6.3
the intent of the author is to project the averageof global warming, not the global warming itself.
(E) wins

Subject verb agreement satisfies D & E. Following came to my mind while attempting this.
An average is a point in 'between x & y' while an increase in average would have been 'from x to y'.
So answer is E.

Group - Projects...
A group projects something... Not projects something 'to do' something else...
So, E.

I can see why its E because of subject - verb agreement and because of between X and Y

But "average" global warming of between just doesn't sound right! Can someone clarify this usage..

A simpler way to put this is when you are talking from 1.8 to 6.3, it includes the number 1.8 and 6.3, if in the range you have smallest as 1.8 and 6.3, your average cannot be 1.8 or 6.3, it has to be somewhere in between hence E is the correct choice as against D

Average is a single value and cannot vary over a range. Hence E is preferrable to D.
