I'll go with A. Rest all options have issues.

Hi Getgyan,
Although option A is best among the rest, don't you think option A has issue as well. "Is shedding"?

Can you kindly confirm the source.

Can you kindly confirm the source.

'Is shedding' means something thats happening in present and will go on till future. And why is it shedding ' to become one of asia's glittering metropolises. Here there is a causation taking place, something thats happening in present and will go on till future, this will result to a future event. So usage of shedding is very important.

Hope it clears the doubt.
