Eliminate A,C and E because the words 'or more' are redundant after saying 'at least'
In D...'if the ice was melting...' tense is strange
thus my answer is B

Just came across a post on testmagic. The poster was saying that OA for this question is D. I'm not convinced for D. B is the answer for me.

Any takers for D.

wild_desperado - Golden rule of thumb - if is never followed by was. (This sentence is an exception, of course - what a paradox ;-))
D - no way, no how!

vkat007, The use of WAS with IF is posible. WAS is nothing but is of a be form.

like BE, WAS, BEEN

Here is what I know,

If situtation is impossible and totally hypotheticle, then you have to use were with If, but if the situation is possible then use of WAS is not grammtically wrong.

I agree at least 100 feet or more has a redundant use of 'more'. At least 100 feet would already suggests that the sea level could go above that 100ft.

B it is.
