(B)
"at least 100 feet or more" is redundant
"the ice of Greenland and Antarctica" is plural (I believe)

A - were to melt does not sound good.

Now, we use "were", "had" and "should" in a speculating/imaginative or wishing sentence.

So, my next bet is E.

Tough to pick between B and E. I would pick E. Here is why.

Should....melt...would rise seems much better than

Were ... to melt...would rise!

Conside this!

Should I go to Disney, I would spend at least $500 or more!
Were I go to Disney, I would spend at least $500.

Which one would you pick?

The official answer is D.

But judging from what everyone is answering, I feel like there is a mistake in the official answers and that the correct answer is B.

Possible, I will do some research if it is OK to have "past continous" within "if"
