I had to go between D and E, but in E, they (which is the wrong pronoun) should refer to the frog(which is singular!!)

I would prefer D here.

In E there is S-V problem (we are talking about a # legged frog) and also E is passive compared to D

Answer is D!!

E is wrong because of the "they" which is wrong in reference to the
"The decline of the mountain yellow-legged frog" .

The correct statement for E should be
-so severe that they could well be listed by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service so severe that it could well

Answer D

severa enough is not idiomatic but "so .....that" is.

D is clear and concise.

The decline [of the mountain yellow-legged frog in the high reaches of the Sierra Nevada] has become severe enough for the United States Fish and Wildlife Service quite possibly to list it as an endangered species in the near future.

Removing the unnecessary part in the above statement in bold and considering that the subject of the sentence."it" refers to decline.
Am i missing something?
Please help.

"x...enough" illogically implies that the decline was a goal.

+1 D

so (adj.) that is the correct idiom.
In E, they doesn't have a clear antecedent.

Appreciate experts views on the use of pronoun 'it'. To me it is ambiguous.
