This was bread and butter for u guys... 8-)

The first part of the problem in this sentence is number/numbers - what is number/numbers referring to? This is a study of girls who studied engineering, in effect a specific group, or demographic. To describe a specific group we use a singular number, so we will look for an answer with number ( A, B, and C are numbers). Of the two choices left, E suffers from redundancy raised...increase. Choice D is the correct answer.
