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) Plausible though it sounds, the weakness of the hypothesis
(B) Even though it sounds plausible, the weakness of the hypothesis
(C) Though plausible, the hypothesis’ weakness
(D) Though the hypothesis sounds plausible, its weakness
(E) The weakness of the hypothesis which sounds plausible

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

OA please?

Good job Guys D is the OA.

this is a dangling modifier problem.

only D uses the correct modifier.
