Go with D

Subject is singular.

A,B,C are out.

In E second that has no reference. Neither it is starting a restrictive clause, nor it is referring to any noun. It is not even indicating an advisial/suggestive mood.

I am not sure the correct idiom is "likelihood for" or "likelihood of".

But I will stick with D.

I initially chose D, as I thought that the subject is singular, but likelihood for is not the right idiom

I took a second look, at the SC, and I was wondering if the subject is "forms of competitive sports". If so, then the answer is C.

No, the subject is "the deliberate and even brutal aggression".

E seems to indicate that the violance will (for sure) erupt. and moreover the combination of likelihood and will just are not going together.

E seems to be the best.

contend does not use subjunctive mode. so A B C are out.

and E is better than D.

I picked D too.

But after seeing the OA, I realized that D says it is the likelihood that erupts. So, E is the answer.

"Agression" takes the singular S-V. ...deliberate and even brutal...describe the same subject of the sentence.

"Likelihood that~" is idiomatic

E.
A, B and C out because of the usage of "increase" instead of "increases" for the singular "aggression".

D - "likelihood for violence to erupt" seems incorrect, but I could be wrong.

increases since aggression is singular ....likelihood for seems to be better than likelihood that ( though i'm not fully sure)...but i'd pick D among D&E...
