We have come to the technology arena, so we have to be tread carefully before they bombard us with jargons. Nevertheless, we give it our best shot and we are sure to come out with the best result.

Option A- INCORRECT.
The option in A is no different at all in content when compared to the original content. It is lacking in the information needed which is why it'd simply be incorrect.

Option B- INCORRECT.
This option presents us with a new dimension to the author's creation. But it is bit verbose with unneccessary punctuation that is capable of giving a new meaning if done further.

Option C- INCORRECT.
This is a brilliant effort at creating a beautiful summary of the author's position but for its unnecessary punctuation too. ''Scientists can use a new high technology process'' would've been perfect.

Option D- INCORRECT.
This is still a major problem. Why use a comma to break up words that'd have made meaning if it had been allowed to flow unhindered? your guess is as good as mine.

Option E- CORRECT.
This appears a bit more logical. It details the efforts of those responsible for the simulation processes I.e scientists. The punctuation here in order logical arrangement too. All in all, seems the most correct of all.
