(D) that the day was, as the records show,
(E) shown in the records, that it was : Fact was not shown rather the fact is that it is hottest day.

Very easy. All but D are nonsensical. D is the correct answer.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



Because you have the word ‘emphasized’, you also need to use the word ‘that’. That leaves choices D and E as possible answers. D has a better order of words than E has. You are not so much emphasizing a fact shown in the records as emphasizing the fact that it was the hottest day on record. Choice D is the correct answer.
