I think data is plural and datum is singular

So A and B straight out

D is awkward
E is passive

C lives

A)Data gathered by weather satellites has been analyzed by scientists, reporting that the Earth?s northern latitudes have - Who is reporting? Data or Scientists? Seems as if Data is reporting so misplaced modifier.

Ask same ques to each choice and we come up with C as the best answer

C)After analyzing data gathered by weather satellites, scientists report that the Earth?s northern latitudes have

Scientists have analyzed the data and report.

C: "After analyzing data gathered by weather satellites, scientists report that the Earth's northern latitudes have" - should it not be "After analyzing data gathered by weather satellites, scientists report(ed) that the Earth's northern latitudes have", otherwise it sounds more like a phenomenon which kind of repeats itself - think the intent is to limit the observation to a specific event.

Thanks

A ,E and B seem to be passive.
D reported speech that makes more sense
also as having is not correct

C is best

Some of the stats of this forum just surprises me. Yes this isn't a super hard question..but only 5% got it wrong!?!? That doesn't sound right.

Anyways, I'd like to point out that C has incorrect usage of "due to" albeit being the correct answer. :D:D
