The number of them carrying the Ebola virus will increase as more and more people consume tainted bushmeat, the meat of African wild animals, and come into contact with infected apes.


A. The number of them carrying the Ebola virus will increase as more and more people consume tainted bushmeat, the meat of African wild animals, and come into contact with infected apes. --- them' may erroneously refer to the infected apes also.


B. The number of humans carrying the Ebola virus will increase as more and more people had consumed tainted bushmeat, the meat of African wild animals, and have come into contact with infected apes. The perfect tense 'have come' is wrong to denote an ongoing increase in the number of people. 2. ' had consumed' is wrong verb tense

C. The number of humans carrying the Ebola virus will increase as more and more people consume tainted bushmeat, the meat of African wild animals, and come into contact with infected apes. --- the correct choice.

D. As a number of people consume tainted bushmeat, the meat of African wild animals, and come into contact with infected apes, the number of them carrying the Ebola virus will increase. 1. "a number of people" alter the original intent of 'more and more people.' --- Incorrect. 2. The reference for 'them' is suspect.


E. As more and more people consume tainted bushmeat, the meat of African wild animals, and are coming into contact with infected apes, the number of humans carrying the Ebola virus will increase. --- The use of a simple present for the first arm and a present progressive for the second arm is unparallel for describing concurrent events.
