A

Since we are talking about a particular pollutant, "especially" is used. Also, "ability....to deal" is correct

"specially" is incorrect in D and E

No more takers?

TeHCM/MATT, OA is A!

Some info about especially vs specially:

"Specially = for a special purpose

e.g. 'This car is specially designed for performance.'

Especially = in particular, above all

e.g. 'Especially because it's your birthday.'
e.g. 'Her dog is very noisy, especially when she has visitors.'"

Prefer C.
unless there is typo, A is not correct. IMO, systems should be system's.

Don't you think "to deal" is better than "in dealing"?

Professor,

I have also noticed that the SC1000 doucment has typos, especially with apostrophe. I agree it should be system's.

But as TeHCM pointed out, "ability to deal" is better tha "ability in dealing"
