like nuclear reactors - wrong. Here we need "as nuclear reactors do"
(C) merging the nuclei of atoms rather than splitting them apart, as nuclear reactors do
Correct
(D) and merges the nuclei of atoms but does not split them apart, as is done in unclear reactors
(E) and merges the nuclei of atoms, unlike atomic reactors that split them apart
D and E incorrectly use "and merges" instead of "merging" .

cass,
why "and merges" in D and E is incorrect.


We need a gerund here to modify the verb "powers".
Ask yourself: How does the nuclear fusion power the Sun?
And answer: The nuclear fusion powers the Sun merging the nuclei of atoms ...

Hi Caas,sentence after merging...acts as a participle modifying Nuclear Fusion...not a gerund...gerund acts as a noun in a sentence.

I think "and " is required to complete the sentence.
"as is done " is incorrect ->D is out
Pick E
