C

Maybe this isn't a good explanation, but it becomes more clear if you take the word "necessarily" out of the equation. The only one that sounds smooth and agrees with "resulted" is C.

A. factors and not necessarily foreshadowing that there would be
B. factors and not necessarily that it foreshadowed
C. factors and did not necessarily foreshadow
D. factors, while not necessarily a foreshadowing of
E. factors, while it did not necessarily foreshadow that there would be


I say C. Analysts are saying two things

1. that the increase resulted from...
2. (that the increase) did not necessarily foreshadow....

"necessarily" is an adverb and should be placed next to what it modifies, in this case "foreshadow"

E is awkward and wordy. "Foreshadow" is a transitive verb and needs an object. In E the object is a convoluted noun clause which doesn't really make sense.

I'll have to go with C. It is clear and concise and makes a clear reference to the un- underlined part of the sentence.

A. factors and not necessarily foreshadowing that there would be (there would be is awkward)
B. factors and not necessarily that it foreshadowed (no clear antecedent of "it")
C. factors and did not necessarily foreshadow (Elipsis : [ increase]did not necessarily foreshadow)
D. factors, while not necessarily a foreshadowing of (avoid Ing forms as far as possible)
E. factors, while it did not necessarily foreshadow that there would be(no clear antecedent of "it")


Hence C is the correct choice
hope this helps

B, E is out because of "it"

D is missing "that"

A is long & doesn't sounds good to ear.

C it is. :)

C wins. Was caught between B and C and realized that B has a pronoun issue with "it"
