The answer is 'E'.

A) Restrictive clause 'that' points to middle east
B) S-V Agreement (yields)
C) 'with' is needed after 'simultaneously'; also 'having been' usage doesn't sound correct.
D) S-V Agreement (yields) & 'with' is needed after 'simultaneously'

IMO, the clue here is "evidence that", which is only in E, and A and C both violet this expression. B and D are out because of the singular verb "yields".

agree that it is tough one................

It actually took over a minute to solve this one, and YES it is a rather difficult SC Duttsit. BTW: Your comment really cracked me up :P Thanx!

BTW2: We have all seen you chew up and spit out some seriously intimidating PS/DSs like they were bubble gum!

C is wrong because "having been cut" is passive. D and B are wrong because there is not subject/verb agreement. E is better than A because "strong evidence that" is in this sentence better than "strong evidence for"
