I will go with A

eliminate c and d as ethinicity cant be repeated

eliminate b as processes is plural while a gradual undermining is singular

Between a and e, choose a dut to correct tense and use of would.

A. rest have flaws.

I have read somewhere that if there is "would" in the statement look for "were" and vice versa. Is it correct? taken this example I selected E because it does not have "would".
