Scientists studying the region are divided over how much of the temperature shift is due to the region's large natural variations and how much is being driven by the global buildup of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gases, like those emitted by tailpipes.

A. is being driven by the global buildup of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gases, like

B. the global buildup of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gases drive, such as

C. the global buildup of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gases drive, like

D. is driven by the global buildup of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gases, such as

E. is being driven by the global buildup of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gases, such like

+1 for D.

A. is being driven by the global buildup of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gases, like

B. the global buildup of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gases drive, such as

C. the global buildup of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gases drive, like

D. is driven by the global buildup of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gases, such as --> Correct

E. is being driven by the global buildup of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gases, such like

Hence, D.

In E, such like....clearly wrong.
In B, gases drive, such as......wrong
In C, Gases drive, like....wrong

Now what I see here.
Green house gases, such/like those emitted by tailpipes.
In "those emitted by tailpipes", those refers to gases and sentence shows similarity between green house gases and gases emitted by tailpipes, not an example of greenhouse gases. Therefore, such as is out. Option D is wrong here.

A is correct.

Please let me know if I am wrong with explanation.

In the question above, why is A incorrect ? How can D be the correct answer for its improper use of "such as" ? Can someone please clarify this doubt?

How is the use of such as improper ? We always use such as for stating examples, so is done in this question.
Greenhouse gases such as those emitted by..... - is the right usage. Like is always used to compare nouns.

Thus, D is best.

Classic 2v3 split between such as and like
e is straight away out because of such like in the end
usage of like those is incorrect (comparison)
a and c are also out.
b is out because of drive, such as

d it is
