A

B: preposition phrase beginning with "with" is incorrect.
C/D: "that ..." incorrectly modifying atmosphere
E. as cannot be used as relative pronoun.

I agree: A

If C would be ",that affect", would it be proper?

It is important to note that interactions affect the global climate and not the atmosphere. So all other answers are wrong.

I mistook the meaning

I thought atmostphere affects the climate

How can interactions affect, even if they affect, how do we know what the sentence actually means? certainly it cant expect us to have knowledge on climate .. etc

We need A, as it's the only one that states explicitly that the interactions affect the climate.

do you guys think that there could also be a case of plurals?

answer A...interactions that (affect) refer to the plural (long term interactions)
