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
Please help to explain. Thank you!!
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
