IMO C

In D use of 'due to' is wrong.
In E the meaning is changed. Pesticides are in use & not their chemical compositions.
A & B are not doing well with 'neutralizing'.
C goes perfect with 'neutralizing' & the second concern, 'due to', is correctly used.

How is it possible? "Due to" is used to modify nouns, no verbs, isn't it? and should be possible to be replaced by 'caused by', but in this example we cannot do this. Am I wrong? Smb pls explain :(

Expert's post
It is possible to dispute the OA namely C ; what is the cause of Azocide’s ineffectiveness? Is it the chemical compositions of the other pesticides or the other pesticides themselves? Text means to say that it is the chemical composition of other pesticides, while C says it is due to the pesticides, in effect changing the meaning substantially.
