E it is

singular subject aggression requires singular verb increases

now contend represents a degree of uncertainty hence requires violence will erupt

Hi Pravin

Can you please explain this in little more detail: "now contend represents a degree of uncertainty hence requires violence will erupt"

Thanks,

"likelihood for" is unidiomatic as we have a verb in the clause after likelihood.
'likelihood that imitative violence will erupt' seems right

I feel there is no choice for subjunctive mood. Neither it is a demand nor it expresses an unusual conditions. It is a statement based on indicative mood. Even none of the options contains a 'would'.

Not sure how to copy and paste. Anyway :

quite unrelated with the question, yet, here is good stuff about conditional statements:

the question belongs to one of the several conditions mentioned in the page.

A, B, C are ruled out because "integral" increases, not increase the likelihood....

We have D & E left. In D, I think this answer would be the one if it says "increases the likelihood of imitative violence to erupt". Use for here seems inappropriate. So we have E as the answer.

Correct me if my reasoning is wrong.

I don't get it.
Isn't this the subject "the deliberate and even brutal aggression integral to some forms of competitive athletics"? Which is "plural?
