A) which triples to fifteen the number of wreck sites now known as littering—Shh! Relative pronoun touch rule

B) tripling to fifteen the number of wreck sites now known to litter – best choice
C) which triples to fifteen the number of wreck sites now known to litter -- same as A
D) tripling to fifteen the number of wreck sites now known as littering --- as littering is wrong idiom
E) which triples to fifteen the number of wreck sites now known that litter—same as A.

Shh: what does ‘which’ refer to; If it is bay, then the meaning is absurd; If it is wrecks, then the singular verb 'triples' is wrong.

Hi Daagh sir,
can you please help to explain the meaning of this sentence, I am confused in use of 'known to'... I thought it should be 'known as'.
thanks for all your explanations for SC questions.
