Some climatologists, while admitting that the burning of fossil fuels have raised the level of CO2 in the atmosphere and have caused an increase in the level of global temperature, argue that both these effects are contributing to an abundance of plant mass and thereby leading to heightened consumption of CO2 levels, and bringing down the temperature

Easy Pick, although lengthy, but Gurpreet did them in style.

IMO D!! too as done by gurpreet, agree with all his corrections in wrong options.

Can someone explain why A is wrong.
I went think A:
subject verb and parallelism - the fossil fuels have raised is correct in otion A and also parallelism is correct - the effects are contributing to -- and thereby leading to ---, and bringing down the temperature.

In A, the burning (of fossil fuels) have raised flouts S-V agreement. It should be has raised or raises in line with the singularity of the burning

As pointed out rightly by almost all, the OA is D.

I am confused between D and E.

(D) Some climatologists, while admitting that the burning of fossil fuels raises the level of CO2 in the atmosphere and causes an increase in the level of global temperature, argue that both these effects contribute to an abundance of plant mass, thereby leading to heightened consumption of CO2 levels, and bringing down the temperature - is D better?

(E) Some climatologists, while admitting that the burning of fossil fuels raise the level of CO2 in the atmosphere and cause an increase in the level of global temperature, argue that both these effects are contributing to an abundance of plant mass and thereby leading to heightened consumption of CO2 levels, bringing down the temperature

Also, what is the role of thereby/ and thereby? Why is E incorrect?

I think the answer is E. There is a parallelism error in D.
(D) Some climatologists, while admitting that the burning of fossil fuels raises the level of CO2 in the atmosphere and causes an increase in the level of global temperature, argue that both these effects "contribute" to an abundance of plant mass, thereby leading to heightened consumption of CO2 levels, and bringing down the temperature - is D better

All the other verbs are in ing form. Hence I think that the use of "contribute" is wrong.
