my take if E. A, B and C are out because "which" has no clear referent. D sounds awkward to me. and it has idiomatic error. Make X Y. "making an attractive substitution of alcohol distilled from cereal grain" is nonsensical. correct me if i am wrong

IMO Option E.

A, B, C are wrong because which can not modify rises.
D is awkward
E -correct

Picked 'E'. "Which" cannot modify "rises" in the sentence. Choice 'E' is more clearer than choice 'D'

D. Making an attractive substitution of alcohol distilled from cereal gain
E. Making alcohol distilled from cereal grain an attractive substitute

Between substitute and substitution, i am lost. In E, is substitution more correct and appropriate, as "attractive" is adjective that should modify a noun?

Can someone explain, please. Thanks
