A)Data gathered by weather satellites has been analyzed by scientists, reporting that the Earth?s northern latitudes have - Who is reporting? Data or Scientists? Seems as if Data is reporting so misplaced modifier.

Ask same ques to each choice and we come up with C as the best answer

C)After analyzing data gathered by weather satellites, scientists report that the Earth?s northern latitudes have

Scientists have analyzed the data and report.
