Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
Contrary to earlier conjectures, it may be that increased atmospheric carbon dioxide as a result of burning fossil fuels would cool the globe by reducing the amount of solar energy absorbed by snow.
(A) increased atmospheric carbon dioxide as a result of burning
(B) increased atmospheric carbon dioxide resulting from the combustion of
(C) increasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere resulting from the combustion of
(D) carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that increase from burning
(E) atmospheric carbon dioxide that increased from burning
The gist of the sentence is "increase in Co2 would reduce the absorption of solar energy". Only A and B come close. In A , "as a result of " is redundant. Morever, "combustion of fuels" is teh right usage.
Contrary to earlier conjectures, it may be increased atmospheric carbon dioxide resulting from the combustion of fossil fuels would cool the globe by reducing the amount of solar energy absorbed by snow.
combustion in contrary to burning is a better option
i'm really sorry guys! i completely forgot to get back to this question with the OA. The OA is B. A is wrong because the "as" in "as a result of" implies that you are considering the Atmospheric CO as a hypothetical result, not as a factual result. In option B, "resulting from" makes the result factual. Also, the "increased atmospheric CO" in option B is more concise than what's written in option E.
As for C, "atmosphere resulting" implies that the atmosphere is a factual result of the combustion....not logical
As for D, the "atmosphere that increase from buring.....", how can the atmosphere increase from burning? what is really increase? in size? speed? even if we know what is that increase, is it even logical? no way....
hope this helps
