I am going ahed with D.

It has to be 'increases' because of 'the deliberate and even brutal aggression '. A, B and C are ruled out.

E is too wordy.

A, B, C - eliminated on the basis of the wrong subject-verb agreement
agression [singular] calls for increases

D - can't really explain, simply sounds unidiomatic to me

I will go with E.
A, B , C fail due to subject verb agreement.
D sounded unidiomatic to me..on further thought I realized that it is unidiomatic because likelihood for should be followed by one entity ( a noun) rather than " imitative violence to erupt". We know from common english usage that it can be something like "likelihood for violence eruption" . Infact more correct usage should be " likelihood of"

probable: D or E.

I think, 'likelihood for' must be followed by a noun. E for me.

Bingo!! The whole crowd except me is for E which is correct answer.
Yes..in retrospect, E looks better with proper idiomatic usage.
