Vote for E. Except for E, all other choices have unclear "they".

The real contest is between B and E, I think the "they" is a good enough pronoun...but the comma in choice B is throwing me off..I select E..

Thanks for posting the past discussion on this.
After reading it, now I lean to D for a couple of reasons:
1)in D, "they" can only be power stations as journalists can not be modified "unsafe"
2)in E, "would or could" should be "would be or could" for parallel structure.

So it is D.

So it is D.

I also choose D. D is the most clear and makes the most sense. But I wish E had more of an error than a minor "would or could be", because it seems so menial to omit E because of this. Why can't one say would or could be?

I would go with E.
The "they" in the rest of them is ambiguous.I cannot understand how OA can be D.

I think we should not approach these type of question based on gramatical rules. We need to understand the meaning first.

In this question

A majority of the international journalists surveyed view ....... but think that they(nuclear power stations ) .... be safe....

Based on this, D is clear and concise.
