A) enormously in that a single tree, depending on both its size and on climate and altitude, could produce
B) enormously in that a single tree, dependent on its size and also on climate and altitude, is able to produce
C) enormously, because a single tree, depending on its size and on climate and altitude, is able to produce

C for me.

"in that" is colloquial "being" is wrong in D and "and as well as" introduces too much redundancy in E.

Agree with C.
In A, usage of 'both' is incorrect.
B - 'and also' is awkward.

For Effect and Cause scenarios – because is preferred over in that
Eliminate A and B


A) enormously in that a single tree, depending on both its size and on climate and altitude, could produce
B) enormously in that a single tree, dependent on its size and also on climate and altitude, is able to produce
C) enormously, because a single tree, depending on its size and on climate and altitude, is able to produce [Hold it]
D) enormously, because a single tree, being dependent on its size, climate and altitude, is capable of producing [being dependent – wordy – dependent is concise – eliminate it]
E) enormously, because a single tree, dependent both on its size and as well as on climate and altitude, could produce [ both as well as – redundant – eliminate it]

Answer: C
