Those skeptical of the extent of global warming argue that short-term temperature data are an inadequate means of predicting long-term trends and point out that the scientific community remains divided on whether significant warming will occur and what impact will it have if it does.

A. on whether significant warming will occur and what impact will it have if it does.
B. on whether warming that occurs will be significant and the impact it would have
C. as to whether significant warming will occur or the impact it would have if it did
D. over whether there will be significant warming or the impact it will have
E. over whether significant warming will occur and what impact it would have

I'm really sorry guys, but I don't have the OA to this problem. I got E as my answer. Does anyone know the OA to this question? Please post your answers of your reasonings.
thanks

For me its betweeen A and E and I believe "divided over X and Y" is correct idiom.

So E makes sense.

Its between A and E.

"Divided on" and "Divided over" -- both are correct.

E is more concise than A.

Will go for E.

E

"will it" makes A incorrect

Is there a difference between the bolded items?

A. on whether significant warming will occur and what impact will it have if it does.
B. on whether warming that occurs will be significant and the impact it would have

I can't differentiate the two in meaning, but I get it a sense they are not the same. Any suggestions?
