In choice E, are "whether significant...occur" and "what impact...have" noun phrases? According to the structure of the sentence, they must be noun phrases because they come after a preposition (over), and only noun and noun phrases can follow a preposition.
However, both don't seem noun phrases:


Can "whether + clause" be a noun phrase?
Also, I cannot identify what kind of structure "what impact it would have" is
.

It seems a clause. Is "what" working as a pronoun in this sentence? :s
Finally, they don't seem parallel at all, but "AND" requires parallelism.

Please, your comments.


Adding my 2 cents -
"what impact it would have" is a big noun phrase (though, I forgot the grammatical name for that :? ) , and such structure will always be singular. Consider following examples -
1- "WHAT YOU LIKE MOST DURING CHILDHOOD" ultimately BECOMES your passion/habit.
2- "WHETHER A HAMPER BE PRESENTED TO EACH ATTENDEE AT YOUR WEDDING" IS a matter of choice.

Hope it helps !

Those skeptical of the extent of global warming argue that
short-term temperature data are an inadequate means of predicting long-term trends and
point out that
the scientific community remains divided on
whether significant warming will occur and
what impact will it have if it does.


A. on whether significant warming will occur and what impact will it have if it does.
B. on whether warming that occurs will be significant and the impact it would have.
C. as to whether significant warming will occur or the impact it would have if it did.
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.

I have couple of questions here.I tried to refer other posts, but it is till not clear to me.

Q1: Can someone help me to understand the difference between A and E.What makes E win over A?

Q2: Is would correct in E?
The usage I am aware of is:
If i meet him, i will tell him. (Present form when action still hasn't happened)

No they are clauses: Noun clauses. Prepositions can be followed by clauses. For example:

The jury found him guilty for what he did.
- The preposition for followed by noun clause what he did.

An example from OG-13, #34:

Beyond the immediate cash flow crisis that the museum faces, its survival depends on whether it can broaden its membership and leave its cramped quarters for a site where it can store and exhibit its more than 12,000 artifacts.
- The preposition on followed by noun clause whether it can broaden its membership.....
