My choice is A.

E & D are eliminated because the usage 'increased from' seems to be wrong.

C is elimintated because it sounds as if the atmosphere is formed by the result of burning fossil fuels.

Between A and B, B seems to bring in unwanted extra words so I am eliminating B as well.

Correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks :roll:

Hi friends,
I will go for "C" on this.

1. Original senetence requires SUBJECT - " it may be that ..." and "increasing carbon dioxide" is require gerund-subject
2. "incresing carbon dioxide" is a gerund, which shows it is an ongoing, continuous process
3. "combustion of " at the end of the underlined part is require.
4. "increasing... resulting..." forms a parallel structure with "...reducing..." of non-underlined part


Cheers,
Dharmin
