(B) increased atmospheric carbon dioxide resulting from the combustion of

(D) carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that increase from burning
(E) atmospheric carbon dioxide that increased from burning

"atmospheric carbon dioxide" is not the right phrase.

D is my choice.

I'd go with B here although "atmospheric carbon dioxide" does sound a but weird. Overall, it's the only choice that sounds grammatically correct to me.

Between choices A and B. What is the difference between 'as a result of burning' and 'resulting from the combustion of'?

When using "ed" and "ing" the "ing" is the cause and the "ed" is the receiver.

In the sentence above the resulting from the combustion cause the increased atmospheric carbon dioxide.

so the correct answer has to be (B). answer (A) is missing something that is irrelevant to "ed" and "ing".

using this rule, the answer should be A
the "increased" carbon dioxide is a result of the action - "burning" the fossil fuel...

the OA is B.

Can anyone plz help with this..
