I think that A has a modifier problem. When using in assessing the problems...., we should use animated subjects such as scientists or policy makers. So it makes A out

IMO OA should be D

Why did you choose D Himalaya ? because of the modifier ? "in assessing..., the question..."

definitely "in an assesment" is better over "in assessing", so i choosed D.

moreover, i did this question earlier too and it was one of the controversial one. there were some good explanations posted earlier about why D/A/C.
