IMO E.

We can eliminate A, B for using "which"

Eliminate C coz it uses 'and'

Between D and E...I wil gor for E, coz "that" modifies extinctions and "marks" follows the correct S-V agreement pattern.

"Extinctions mark"

OA plzz!!

A and B out for usuage of which

C uses and causing... conjunction 'and' not needed , there must be some connection as the first event leads to the second event

D again in "and it marks..." and is not needed , that in E is correct.

E correct.

i pick D here. "an event" modifies the entire previous clause. as far i know this kind of modifier is called summative modifier. i could be wrong. but it is a modifier issue and D fits the bill
