For sentence correction, I use a process of elimination. Rather than searching for the right answer, I'm trying to eliminate wrong answers. In order to do that more effectively, I focus in on the distinctions between sentences.

My first step, I notice that C,D are different than A,B,E. I start with C,D.

C. No easy flaw to identify, so I keep it and move on.
D. "it is" doesn't make sense here. I eliminate it.

Now on to A,B,E.
The distinction happens after "Earth Day rallies..." so I focus on that.
A. No easy flaw, so I keep it and move on.
B. "They" doesn't make sense, so I eliminate.
E. I don't see a subject. Eliminate.

Now I have to only compare A and C. I use this method of identifying the obviously wrong answer choices because it gets me much closer to the correct answer. If time was an issue, I could now guess between two answer choices rather than 5 without having spent much time.

Comparing A and C:
I choose answer A because it doesn't use a passive voice and conveys the message correctly in a more concise and clear way.

Answer A.
