D. that predict emigration rates of
the team is the one to predict, not the model

C. to predict emigration rates of

D. that predict emigration rates of

E. that predict rates of emigration of at least

This is a type of question where the difference is very subtle if we have not done our homework(I mean study )

lets get to it then,it is clear that adding 'at least' clearly alters the original meaning of the sentence so we do a 2/3 split and get rid of B and E.

Now is the difficult part, in option D 'that predict' can logically only refer to the model and not the team(meaning error), and then if we look we find that model is singular and the verb- predict should be singular as well (predicts) to be grammatically correct.therefor strike out D.

now we are left with A and C, lets do slash and burn!(remove everything that does not matter)

A team - recently formulated - a model - to predict or for predicting?

in my opinion 'to predict' is the correct choice.

C is the correct answer.
