Please always underline the part that needs correction in SC.
I see that this is your first post. Please read rules of posting.

A–the presence of the pronoun ‘it’ is unnecessary.
B– use of and is incorrect.
C–‘it’ has no legitimate antecedent.
D correct
E–not sure why E is incorrect. Just can say that it is.

It is easy to eliminate the three out of 5 choices. It then comes down to B and D.

(B) the Asian long horned beetle feeds on leaves, twigs, and most other plant matter and it causes

The two independent clauses that are:-
1. the Asian long horned beetle feeds.
2. it causes death of trees.
These clauses are only connected by "and" , the correct link of two independent clauses is either by using a semi colon or by using COMMA+FANBOYS.


(D) Asian long horned beetles feed on leaves, twigs, and most other plant matter, causing
ANSWER. Cause and effect relationship is made correctly .

[quote="akbak"]Extensively studied by many researchers over the last five decades, the Asian long horned beetle feed on leaves, twigs, and most other plant matter, it causing the death of many species of hardwood trees.

(A) the Asian long horned beetle feed on leaves, twigs, and most other plant matter, it causing-- it causing SV error

(B) the Asian long horned beetle feeds on leaves, twigs, and most other plant matter and it causes--feeds on leaves is causes not long horn beetle, it refer to long horn beetle

(C) Asian long horned beetles feeds on leaves, twigs, and most other plant matter and it causes-- same error as B also SV error

(D) Asian long horned beetles feed on leaves, twigs, and most other plant matter, causing- correct verb-ing modifier presenting result of the previous clause action

(E) it feeding on leaves, twigs, and most other plant matter, the Asian long horned beetle causes- multiple error construction error
