(A) increase in wages that it expected to approve as a result of negotiations
Seems OK.

(B) increased wages it expected to approve from negotiations
"from negotiations" misplaced modifier.

(C) increasing wages expected to be approved as a result of negotiating
"as a result of negotiations" and not "as a result of negotiating".

(D) negotiated increases in wages it expected to approve
negotiations are happening so we cannot say negotiated.

(E) increases expected to be approved in wages from negotiating
"from negotiating" misplaced.

152.At the invitation of Kwame Nkrumah, W. E. B. Du Bois settled in Gharla and became the editor of the Encyclopedia Africana.

First Bois received invitation, after than he settled. E is clearly expressing this sequence.

153.At the time of the Mexican agrarian revolution, the most radical faction, that of Zapata and his followers, proposed a return to communal ownership of land, to what had been a pre-Columbian form of ownership respected by the Spaniards.
Between A and E, I will go for A.
B and C incorrectly add "and" in sentence.
D changes meaning. "it is still respected by spaniards".
E that incorrect modifies land.
