D looks best. Its parallel and it implies the correct meaning that the mining is done to produce enough electricity.

Agree with D being best for ll in the second half portion

D for me too. A comes close but modifies the meaning thus A is out.

i went for D as well. It conveys the proper meaning (the scientists didnt generate heat on a commercial scale), and maintains parallelism.

D for me.

+1 for great question.
This is a mess of misplaced modifiers and diction. What is heating the homes ? what is producing the heat ? I had to read it a few times to "get" the meaning. But once I understood the meaning, the question was easy to solve.

I interpret it as Scientists mined heat to produce energy --> which will heat factories and homes (and be efficient enough to do so).
Based on this interpretation, I can't look beyond D.

Something of A and B = Something of A and something of B.
here, efficient generation of electricity and heat factories = efficient generation of electricity
And efficient generation of heat factories That sounds funny.
