Thanks.

i for D.


AB are wrong because of 'because'.

C is wrong because "plants" and "weed" don't match in numbers.

E is wordy.

D
A) because they are genetically engineered does not make it any more likely for plants to
- "they", "plants" - plural contradicts with "weed" singular later in the sentence.

B) because it is genetically engineered does not make a plant any more likely to
- "because" and "does not make" - somehow these two don't jive.

C) being genetically engineered does not make it any more likely that plants will
- plural vs singular problem

D) being genetically engineered does not make a plant any more likely to
- CORRECT

E) being genetically engineered does not make a plant any more likely that it will become
- wordy

Between B and D....Why does 'Because' and 'doesn't make' live together?

Under time pressure I would have picked up B since I read that a choice having 'being' is almost always wrong.

Could some one explain more on this?
