IMO its E
Subject here is information and will take singular noun
A B C are out

Between D and E continually is misplaced in D

Hence E

Recently declassified information from military satellites in orbit thousands of miles above the Earth show the planet continually bombarded by large meteoroids that explode with the power of atomic bomb blasts.

(A) show the planet continually bombarded by
(B) show continual bombarding of the planet by
(C) show a continual bombardment of the planet from
(D) shows continually that the planet is bombarded from
(E) shows that the planet is continually bombarded by


The singular subject "information" should take singular verb, hence options A,B,C are out.
The adverb "continually" modifies the verb bombarded(the planet is continually bombarded); hence the option D conveys incorrect meaning; also "bombarded from" is wrong use of preposition.
The correct answer should be E.
Do correct me if I am wrong.

I have a doubt here -

Original sentence-
'Recently declassified information from military satellites in orbit thousands of miles above the Earth show the planet continually bombarded by large meteoroids that explode with the power of atomic bomb blasts.
'
Isnt its necessary to have "that" after show ?

Experts please suggest ?

If you add 'that' you might need to add 'is' as well.

Recently declassified information from military satellites in orbit thousands of miles above the Earth shows that the planet is continually bombarded by large meteoroids that explode with the power of atomic bomb blasts.

Otherwise as given in the question is fine.

Thanks ng2.

Basically , I was skeptical about my understanding of this question. I solved this one in 31 sec , so I want to check if i have rejected choice D for the Correct reason.

I have rejected A,B,C for S-V error .

D is rejected because i was expecting 'that' just after show .

Recently declassified information from military satellites in orbit thousands of miles above the Earth show the planet continually bombarded by large meteoroids that explode with the power of atomic bomb blasts.

(A) show the planet continually bombarded by
(B) show continual bombarding of the planet by
(C) show a continual bombardment of the planet from
(D) shows continually that the planet is bombarded from
(E) shows that the planet is continually bombarded by



Option d is rejected because of a logical reason.
try to understand option D. It suggests that it continually shows that the planet is bombarded while the intended meaning of the correct sentence would be to show that the planet is continually bombarded.

The modifier continually should be near to what it modifies.

Hence option D is rejected
Hope it helps.

(A) show the planet continually bombarded by
(B) show continual bombarding of the planet by
(C) show a continual bombardment of the planet from
(D) shows continually that the planet is bombarded from
(E) shows that the planet is continually bombarded by


Solve this using vertical split as we see show and shows
since we have a phrase initially .so it should be singular hence shows is the correct verb here
left with D and E
In D changes the meaning of sentence by placing the continually next to shows
In fact the meaning of sentence is that planet is continually bombarded by .......

E is winner
