The answer is E
A and B are out of scope .
C is also irrelevant
D may be true but do not know that the scientists working on both the fungus are same may be or may be not .
E is correct.

I marked B as answer. I can understand why B is wrong. But cant get my head around answer E. Opt. E states that "All articles go through at least a one-year review process before publication" . The answer choice E does not state that there is a change in review process between the 2 years. If there is no difference in review process b\w 2 years then it should not make any difference in the number of publication.

The main word is “publish”. The argument it says that. So OA shall be E
