'Warming of' and 'of' (necessarily with belching, making 'belching of') shows that we need parallelism and require 'of' element with -ing form.

A. a corresponding rise in sea levels, melting glaciers, and the bleaching of 'of' with melting is laking

B. rising sea levels, melting glaciers, and the bleaching of 'of' with melting is laking

C. a correspondence in the rise of sea levels, melted glaciers, and bleached -ing form is not present

D. a corresponding rise in sea levels, the melting of glaciers, and the bleaching of. correct choice

E. corresponding rising sea levels, melting glaciers, and bleaching 'of' with melting is laking
