E

'Every nine years' modifier is correctly placed next to what is being calculated. Im confused whether its should or will...i think it is 'should' because according to the calculations there could be a slight chance of it not happening. 'Will' indicates with 100% that it occur. Furthermore looking at the second part of the sentence it states '16 buildings can be 'expected' to'... Not 100% sure it 'will' happen.

I have also had a dillema between D and E have chosen E.
Because "will be struck" sounds to strong.

But the right answer is D. I suppose it is because "should" in E can be interpretated as reccomendation to be struck.
I am not sure, but do not see any oher explanation.
