Official explanation:- Choice A is correct because the cause-and-effect relationship is accurately and concisely represented. With answer choice B, "soaring class sizes" is a plural subject and needs a plural verb instead of the singular "is." In choice C, "because"and "which" both introduce dependent clauses. The result is that "which" has no clear referent. The sentence is also chronologically confusing. Answer choice D reverses the cause (too many students) and the effect (large class sizes) in an awkward way. "Due to from..." is a wordy construction, as well. With choice E, "due to" and "with the result" are redundant because they mean the same thing.
