What are the early warning signs?
i)the warming of ocean waters and corresponding rise in sea levels
ii)the melting of glaciers
iii) the bleaching of coral reefs

These are all complex gerund, a type of gerund that is preceded by an article and can be made parallel to action nouns.
Among the answer choices, some choices are not parallel; they have neglected the usage of "the".
Among the choices, the best and the answer is D.
