Carbon dioxide, which traps heat in the atmosphere and helps regulate the planet’s surface temperature, is constantly being exchanged between the atmosphere on the one hand and the oceans and terrestrial plants on the other.

This question tests the knowledge of idioms

Between x and y


Usage
Between: When two objects must be compared
Among: When more than two objects must be compared

Meaning
Carbon dioxide is constantly used in between x and y
Here x atmosphere
and y = the oceans and terrestrial plants

A. exchanged between the atmosphere on the one hand and the oceans and terrestrial plants on the other
B. exchanged, on the one hand, between the atmosphere and the oceans and terrestrial plants, on the other[Ambiguous]
C. exchanged between, on the one hand, the atmosphere, with the oceans and terrestrial plants, on the other
D. exchanged, on the one hand, among the oceans and terrestrial plants, and the atmosphere, on the other
E. exchanged among the oceans and terrestrial plants on the one hand and the atmosphere on the other

Between B and A.
Option B is ambiguous as it is not clear whether the comparison is in between the atmosphere and the oceans or the comparison is in between the atmosphere and terrestrial plants.

Carbon dioxide, which traps heat in the atmosphere and helps regulate the planet’s surface temperature, is constantly being exchanged between the atmosphere on the one hand and the oceans and terrestrial plants on the other.

A. exchanged between the atmosphere on
the one hand and the oceans and terrestrial plants on the other ---correct choice using the idiom between x on one hand and y on the other hand.

B. exchanged, on the one hand, between the atmosphere and the oceans and terrestrial plants, on the other---unidiomatic and weird with so many unnecessary commas

C. exchanged between, on the one hand, the atmosphere, with the oceans and terrestrial plants, on the other-- exchanged between with is unidiomatic

D. exchanged, on the one hand, among the oceans and terrestrial plants, and the atmosphere, on the other ----- among cannot be used between two groups.

E. exchanged among the oceans and terrestrial plants on the one hand and the atmosphere on the other ----- among is the problem

A.exchanged between the atmosphere on the one hand and the oceans and terrestrial plants on the other - Correct
B.exchanged, on the one hand, between the atmosphere and the oceans and terrestrial plants, on the other - meaning is unclear as we don't know the 2 groups here
C.exchanged between, on the one hand, the atmosphere, with the oceans and terrestrial plants, on the other - Between .. with is not idiomatic
D.exchanged, on the one hand, among the oceans and terrestrial plants, and the atmosphere, on the other - usage of among is incorrect since we have only 2 groups
E.exchanged among the oceans and terrestrial plants on the one hand and the atmosphere on the other - usage of among is incorrect

Answer A
