C it is
D and E are out because the deliberate and even brutal aggression integral should be followed by a plural verb.

B is unnecessarily wordy.

Left with A and C, C uses the participle â€˜eruptingâ€™ correctly and the restrictive case in A gives the sentence another meaning.

Will go for E
agressio is subject. so between D aand E . E uses that correctly to introduce the subsequent clause. in D if it has been of instead of for -'likelihood for imitative violence to" erupt, then it would be correct as well.

agression is the subject...and it is singular...we are left with D and E...

E is wrong I belive the idiom is to erupt....

D it is..
