This problem really frustrated me..

South Korea has witnessed the world’s most dramatic growth of Christian congregations; church membership is expanding by 6.6 percent a year, fully two-thirds of the growth coming from conversions rather than the population increasing.
(A) coming from conversions rather than the population increasing
(B) coming from conversions rather than increases in the population
(C) coming from conversions instead of the population’s increasing
(D) is from conversions instead of population increases
(E) is from conversions rather than increasing the population

Scrool down for OA











OA is B, I picked D

Now please explain Why D is wrong?, Also, when do we use verb "is" in a dependent clause?.

rather than - is a conjunction
instead of - is a preposition

population increaes - is awkward construction
increases in the population - correct

coming from converions(noun) + rather than (coordinating conjuction)
+ increases in the population(noun phrase)

coming from converions(noun) + and (coordinating conjuction)
+ christian immigrants(Noun)

You need a coordination conjuction here.

(B) is indeed the right answer.
