    I think B is the correct answer because "Depending" is present participle. However, the correct answer from the textbook is "D" so I'm confused.

    Please correct if I've been misunderstood.

    The book is dead wrong. Only (B) is correct.
    I agree.

    I didn't look closely at the post that said that the book suggested "D". There is no possible way that "D" is correct in my mind. Only "B" is acceptable.
