group is singular , so ,projects

Between D and E

E sounds awkward because "of" is not required

IMO: D

reason: group of scientists is a collective noun, hence singular verb 'projects' is right.
group of scientists projects global warming average not an average global warming

kudos if i m right

Agree with the reasoning for the requirement of the singular verb.

Now, the problem with E is we are talking of a range, so it has to be From X to Y. 'Between X & Y' is awkward because we are not choosing between two values.

It's not (D), but rather (E).

You'll find a very good explanation from this link.

I think we are not talking about range....infact sentece says average ,which will be a single number btw x & y...

E is correct.

average global warming ---> Average lies between two points in space. Which is logical.

I think it should be E. ' An international group' is singular and hence projects should follow.

That is correct. The average can only be in one spot by the year 2000. D implies that the average will be a range, not a specific point.

Subject verb agreement rules out A,B,C.
Between D and E, E is better because D says an average from X to Y and that definitely doesn't make sense. An Average is never from X to Y.

I picked E.

Eliminate A, B and C as group is singular hence it should be "projects" not "project".

The scientists don't know the exactly how much the global warming would be. Hence it's "between" 1.8 and 6.3.

Hence go for E.

(A) project an average global warming that will be between 1.8 and
(B) project an average global warming to be from 1.8 to
(C) project global warming that will average between 1.8 and
(D) projects global warming to average from 1.8 to
(E) projects an average global warming of between 1.8 and

Group is collective noun so projects...
between d and E i will go with E though "of" is awkward because in D pronoun "from" is wrong....it should be between...
