A should be fine.

"Divided on" is better than "divided over".

D. over whether there will be significant warming or the impact it will have
E. over whether significant warming will occur and what impact it would have


A: and what impact will it have if it does - wordy
B: Not totally sure, but I don't think on whether is the correct idiom
C: as to whether sounds good, then... "will occur or the impact" changes the meaning of the sentence
D. will have changes the meaning, its not sure if it (globabl warming) "will occur"


E: correct idiom over whether. it would have fixes the wordy phrase will it have if it does, but does not change the meaning.

Again, I think over whether is the correct idiom...

I am going with E too.

A is too wordy at the end. 'if it does' is not necessary.

E should be right because "over whether significant warming will occur and what impact it would have"

It correctly expresses uncertain scenario..

I will choose A.

For me , E seems to be incorrect because the main sentence is in the present tense due to the verb 'argue' and in E the final clause "what impact it would have" should be used in past tense. If E had the clase, "what impact it will have", I will jump for E.

Anyways, please spill the beans..Whats the correct answer ?

A doesn't have parallel structure. should be "it will" instead of "will it". E looks like the least evil option

'divided on' is incorrect. 'will' cannot express a hypothetical situation;'would' is required. This leaves only C and E.

In C, the use of 'or' is incorrect. You cannot be divided over a 'or' b; you can be divided over 'a' and 'b'.

Answer should be E.

What's the OA?

Will go with E

divided over whether is correct idiom and D is awkward.
