Hi syog,
the one little trick that i learnt while in school was to read the sentences in such a way that you omit the line between two (,)s.
if it makes sense, then go for it..

so as per the above, try and read the statement as:

option C ...Archaeologists believe that the Dead Sea Scrolls to provide rare insight OR
option D ...Archaeologists believe that the Dead Sea Scrolls provide rare insight

Do not OMIT the lines between the commas in GMAT rather you can avoid the "warm ups"/middle man (MGMAT language)-typically the prepositional modifiers.

Cutting out the stuff in between commas does not work all the time. Sometimes the sentence is just really long with a lot of chain modifiers.

IMO:D
Correct Idiom is "estimated to be"
in C "To provide make the sentence fragment.
provided ......& estimated to be ......modifier correctly in parallel n it modify "dead sea scrolls" ...so issue with these verb+ed modifier .....
In D : Use of provide make sense because its plural verb of plural subject "dead sea scrolls".
