My answer is B.

Actually, I cannot see any big difference between A and B. B seems to me a better option.

B is the correct answer.

A is not parallel: "increased..." and "burning fossil fuels". Adj and verb.

B it is.

'resulting from the combustion of' is correctly modifying the subject 'increased atmospheric carbon dioxide'

C indicates that the carbondioxide is continously increasing, whereas B says it has increased

Contrary to earlier conjectures, it may be that increased atmospheric carbon dioxide (noun phrase) resulting from the combustion of burning fossil fuels (participle phrase modifying the noun phrase) would cool the globe by reducing the amount of solar energy absorbed by snow.

This is not reflected in the C.

(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


A --> "as a result of" is wordy
B --> looks fine
C --> "increasing carbon dioxide" changes the meaning
D --> firstly looked fine, but "carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that increase" is wordy
E --> wordy

B for me

(A) increased atmospheric carbon dioxide as a result of burning
-> burning fossil fuels -> looks awkward; is burning type of fuels; or whereever fossil fuels are burning etc
(B) increased atmospheric carbon dioxide resulting from the combustion of
combustion of fussible fuel -> Looks ok
(C) increasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere resulting from the combustion of -> awkward "increasing"
(D) carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that increase from burning -> burning as A
(E) atmospheric carbon dioxide that increased from burning -> burning

so B is correct
