B, most of the answer choices have "exposes" which is wrong. That leaves C&B, C is gramatically incorrect at the end of the sentence

yes OA is B

I don't understand very well the role of "whether" at the end of the sentence

Could someone explain?

Cheers

whether [anyone is] archeoligist, TH or SD

whether "he/she is archelogist" or "he/she is TH" or "he/she is SD"

I guess it is because of the subject-verb agreement.

But I am still not convinced about the answer B. For the following reasons

1. If I use "than" in the sentence, then I am comparing 2 entities. In that case is the usage "great depths" correct, shouldn't it be greater?

2. In the question, there is a cause and effect relation "which exposes the arcahelogical remains to turbulence and makes them accessible".

Please confirm whether this is right.

in this sentence 'great' is acting as an adjective to depths rather than acting as superlative nature of depths.

More... instead is not a correct idiom.

More .. than is correct idiom. great depths and shallow depths

Also another point to note is 'where' this pronoun should when we are talking about the place.

Hope you got it straight!

I wasn't able to discern the meaning of this
"Also another point to note is 'where' this pronoun should when we are talking about the place."

Could u please elaborate on this and isn't this sentence a cause and effect relation where as the option a indicates that the 2 events are independent.
