    Currently 26 billion barrels a year, world consumption of oil is rising at a rate of 2 percent annually.
    A. world consumption of oil is rising at a rate of
    B. the world is consuming oil at an increasing rate of
    C. the world’s oil is being consumed at the increasing rate of
    D. the rise in the rate of the world’s oil consumption is
    E. oil is consumed by the world at an increasing rate of

    My take;
    26 billion barrels per year(signifies rate..so should modify a change)
    Please suggest if my thought process is right?
    :I chose D initially
    The rise seems to be correctly modified by 26 billion barrels per year


    B. 26 billion dollars per year incorrectly modifies world
    C.
    1.modifier error as in A
    2.the world's oil--we dont have mars oil or other cosmic oil
    D:I chose D initially
    The rise seems to be correctly modified by 26 billion barrels per year
    E. same error as B
