The discovery that Earthâ€™s inner core rotates independently of and more quickly than Earthâ€™s outer layers is responsible for advancing studies of the flow of heat from the inner through the outer planet and of the formation and periodic reversal in direction of Earthâ€™s magnetic field.

A. core rotates independently of and more quickly than Earthâ€™s outer layers is responsible for advancing studies of the flow of heat from the inner through the outer planet and of the formation and periodic reversal in direction of Earthâ€™s magnetic field
B. core rotates independently of and more quickly than Earthâ€™s outer layers is responsible for advancing studies of how heat from the inner core flows through the outer planet, and the formation and periodic reversal in direction of Earthâ€™s magnetic field
C. core rotates independently and more quickly than Earthâ€™s outer layers are responsible for advancing studies of how heat from the inner core flows through the outer planet, and how Earthâ€™s magnetic field forms and the periodic reversal of its direction
D. core, rotating independently and more quickly than Earthâ€™s outer layers, are responsible for advancing studies of the flow of heat from the inner through the outer planet, and the formation and periodic reversal in direction of Earthâ€™s magnetic field
E. core, rotating independently of and more quickly than Earthâ€™s outer layers, is responsible for advancing studies of the flow of heat from the inner through the outer planet and of how Earthâ€™s magnetic field forms and the periodic reversal of its direction

The highlighted text shows problems with different options. I would go with A.

A, B suggests the discovery is responsible for the reversal of polarity IMHO

B. core rotates independently of and more quickly than Earthâ€™s outer layers is responsible for advancing studies of how heat from the inner core flows through the outer planet, and the formation and periodic reversal in direction of Earthâ€™s magnetic field
C. core rotates independently (need of) and more quickly than Earthâ€™s outer layers are (should be is) responsible for advancing studies of how heat from the inner core flows through the outer planet, and how Earthâ€™s magnetic field forms and the periodic reversal of its direction
D. change of meaning
E. change of meaning

Phew...toughy!

At least two reasons why the answer should be (B)

The discovery that Earthâ€™s inner core rotates independently of and more quickly than Earthâ€™s outer layers is responsible for advancing studies of how heat from the inner core flows through the outer planet, and the formation and periodic reversal in direction of Earthâ€™s magnetic field.

"the flow of heat..." (passive) vs "how heat flows..." (active)

Which construction is favored?

Getting A too

A. core rotates independently of and more quickly than Earthâ€™s outer layers is responsible for advancing studies of the flow of heat from the inner through the outer planet and of the formation and periodic reversal in direction of Earthâ€™s magnetic field

Studies is implicit in the second half .

Damn ! I selected B too .... missed the of -of construction and was looking for "responsible for -for " construction .... damn !

I'll take a break and listen to Yanni for sometime .... phew, life sucks !
