D

A) gives the impression that weakness sounds plausible
B) same as A
c) pronoun "it" should refer back to a proper noun not the possesive noun hypothesis's
e) its not the weakness ...which sounds plausible ...but the hypothesis sounds plausible ..so changes the meaning

I was stuck between 'D' & 'E'.
Going with 'D', since 'E' uses 'which' a non-restrictive clause to indicate 'hypothesis' & also there is no comma before 'which'.

A : Modifier error
B: again Modifier error: "it" is referring to " weakness" instead of "hypothesis"
C: seems like a modifier error again
D: CORRECT
E: awkword and wordy

Good job Guys D is the OA.

this is a dangling modifier problem.

only D uses the correct modifier.
