Despite the growing world population, estimated at around 6 billion and growing every day, few economists believe the dire predictions of Thomas Malthus would come true.
A. estimated at around 6 billion and growing every day, few economists believe the dire predictions of Thomas Malthus would come true -> ESTIMATED AT, WOULD COME = OUT
B. estimated at around 6 billion people, growing every day, few economists believe the dire predictions of Thomas Malthus will come true - ,GROWING MODIFIER ERROR, ESTIMATED AT - OUT
C. estimated to be about 6 billion people and growing every day, few economists believe the dire predictions of Thomas Malthus will come true - CORRECT USAGE OF ESTIMATED TO BE, ESTIMATED & GROWING PARALLEL, AND GROWING CORRECTLY MODIFYING POPULATION, AND WILL IS CORRECT IN END
D. estimated to be around 6 billion and it grows every day, few economists believe the dire predictions of Thomas Malthus will come true - ESTIMATED & IT GROWS = OUT
E. estimated at about 6 billion people that grows every day, few economists believe that the dire predictions of Thomas Malthus would be true - SEEMS LIKE PEOPLE THAT GROWS = PEOPLE ARE NOT GROWING.= OUT ALSO ESTIMATED AT = OUT

B. estimated at around 6 billion people, growing every day, few economists believe the dire predictions of Thomas Malthus will come true - WRONG
C. estimated to be about 6 billion people and growing every day, few economists believe the dire predictions of Thomas Malthus will come true - CORRECT
