I am sorry, I do not know why choice C is wrong
I think
"and so reflective that " is good because we can omit "was"
I think
"or else" is good

pls, help
thank you very much



What makes you think that the usage of 'or else's is correct?

There's a meaning error in C, because it seems to imply that there are two possibilities either (i) little polar ice melts OR ELSE (ii) the water levels...
This makes option C wrong answer choice.

I hope it helps, friend. :)

In B, Were it to do so is just a poetic way of expression. Otherwise it simply is the past subjunctive mood of the hypothetical and impossible phenomenon, which literally means - if it were to do so -. So B is passable.

But C has a problem of an independent clause starting with - or else - being conjugated by a simple comma.

The plausible choice must be B as others can not stand the llism test and are riddled with other errors too.



Please help me out:
I think that in "or else", "or" is a conjunction which can lead a clause with a simple comma.
Am I missing something?

I agree with you. The meaning of C is not acceptable, but the or in or else is enough to join those two parts of the sentence.
