Yes D it is, for correct idiom.

I have never seen a sentence using "eating of".

OA is D

but what is the difference between the explanation of these similar question and different answer.
If present metal prices continue to sharply rise, the value of the copper in a penny will soon be greater than the face value of the coin.

B. If present metal prices are continuing their sharp rise
C. Should presnet metal prices continue their sharp rise
D. Continuation of sharply rising metal prices should
E. Metal price's sharp rise continuing should mean

OA C for this .

Using POE I can suggest this:

A and D are out because either their is "sharp rise" or some thing "rises sharply"
B is changing the meaning and is awkward also.
E is also awkward consctruction "Metal price's sharp rise continuing" ????

"any apparent connection" is much more economical than "any connection that is apparent". Also eathing of does not sound good.

Hi All,

I didn't see the idiom "between X & Y" at all, somehow missed it. But still selected 'D'.

Here is my reasoning.

A. If Dr. Wade was right, any apparent connection of the eating of
>> "eating X" would have been better. 'was' tense is wrong.

B. Should Dr. Wade be right, any apparent connection of eating
>> "Should Dr. Wade be right" doesn't go lle with "...sports is purely coincidental"

C. If Dr. Wade is right, any connection that is apparent between eating of
>> "eating X" would have been better.

D. If Dr. Wade is right, any apparent connection between eating
>> The best! "if X is right, Y is coincidental"
E. Should Dr. Wade have been right, any connection apparent between eating
>> Tense problem, doesn't go parallel with last part...
