I think D is the answer here
my reasoning
An international group (group is plural) projects (we cant use project here, subjet verb agreement error hence A B C are out)
Between D and E
E is better because average it uses the correct expression between X and Y
what is the OA for this

guys m no expert at this, so wud appreciate if u can add something to my explanation
Many thanks

OA is E. The reason is that someone projects someone/something to do something. You just CAN'T project global warming to average in option D because global warming doesn't average. It just warms up the planet. That's why option E is more ideal because it made "an average global warming" as the object of the verb "projects."

another point I can add here is that E seems more concise than option D. It's more concise to say "projects average global warming" than to say "projects global warming to average." agree?

C. project global warming that will average between 1.8 and
>> Singular verb "projects" is needed

D. projects global warming to average from 1.8 to
