IMO, B fits it best. Even though the first part is in the present, the outcome can be discussed in the future.

P.S. Not very good at explanations! Still, trying and if someone can explain better, always willing to accept arguments. Thanks!

Correct form is "even though" so eliminate A, B, and E. C is incorrect because it changes the meaning of the sentences. You go from "it's not certain" to "no certainty". D is the answer!

I'm just wondering why it's not possible to use the
even if instead of even though,

Anybody up for an explanation.
