I think it is B because the comma is not necessary for this sentence.
If you added this comma in this sentence, the whole sentence would change the meaning of this sentence.

either ...Or

so B and E are left....

B is OK, since it maintains tense and also, which here is refering to logging...and we are settup up Logging vs surface fires...B doest that best...

B it is

A, C and E are wrong because the correct idiom is Either X or Y. Between B and D, B is better. In B "Which" modifies logging better than does "removing" in D. B should be the answer.

I support B.

Here the idiom either..or is correct, and the contrast that burn...but do not is also correct.

Good job guys B is the OE.

it is an either ...... or structure...

so B and E remains.

B maintains the ||ism better than E. so B is the answer.

We need 'which' to modify logging --> D,E are otu
C --> inappopriately joins two actions (logging + surfce fires) by using 'along with'
A --> 'burning' is wrong
B is the best choice -> 'that' burn, the 'that' modifies surface fires

Agree with D.
' that ' in D correctly modifies surface fires and also b'coz ' either ...or ' construction is required.

I think B is correct.

"Which" in B refers to "logging" and "that" after "or" refers to "surface fires".
so B is consistent.

In D it forms "Either X,Y or Z that" which distorts the idea.
