D/E one of..plural verb..

"15 year effort" sounds better than "an effort for 15 years"

Hence E is final choice.

E
the highlighted part requires the plural "are". A out
B- again "is" is wrong; also "subject how" is incorrect
C "subjecting how" is incorrect
D while it is not clear whether the project has already happened or is underway in the original sentence, D distorts it by implying the former.
