I think, it is in subjunctive mood. Opinions?

'deliberate and even brutal aggression ' is singular so 'increases is correct. E is my pick.

(E) increases the likelihood that imitative violence will erupt

I think this is correct since, simple present + simple future is correct format. Thoughts?

To options are available that have the verb agreement (aggression--increases).

Now in these two (D & E) both are correct but with a little difference of idiom. IMO "likeihood for" is not correct, so the only option is "E".

I don't know about the subjunctive as I am in initial phase of my SC preparation!!
