It's not (D), but rather (E).

You'll find a very good explanation from this link.

IMO: D

reason: group of scientists is a collective noun, hence singular verb 'projects' is right.
group of scientists projects global warming average not an average global warming

kudos if i m right

Subject verb agreement rules out A,B,C.
Between D and E, E is better because D says an average from X to Y and that definitely doesn't make sense. An Average is never from X to Y.

Now, the problem with E is we are talking of a range, so it has to be From X to Y. 'Between X & Y' is awkward because we are not choosing between two values.

I think we are not talking about range....infact sentece says average ,which will be a single number btw x & y...

I picked E.

Eliminate A, B and C as group is singular hence it should be "projects" not "project".

The scientists don't know the exactly how much the global warming would be. Hence it's "between" 1.8 and 6.3.

Hence go for E.

All would be able to narrow down to D and E as a singular verb projects is required. Now between D and E, the average is a single data point and cannot be a range hence average from X to Y is incorrect. However average can be between 2 numbers hence we can go for E.

group is singular , so ,projects

Between D and E

E sounds awkward because "of" is not required

So, D is the answer

E is correct.

average global warming ---> Average lies between two points in space. Which is logical.

I think it should be E. ' An international group' is singular and hence projects should follow.

That is correct. The average can only be in one spot by the year 2000. D implies that the average will be a range, not a specific point.

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...
