a)Because of less availability and greater demand for scientific research, platinum remains consistently expensive, like gold. Redundancy - remains and (is) consistently. Less and greater - awkward quantity indicators. Incorrect.
b)Because of less availability and increased demand for scientific research, platinum remains consistently expensive, like that of gold. Less - awkward quantity indicator, does not pair with increased. New error introduced - of gold. Cost can be of gold, not expensive, which is a subjective form. Incorrect.
c)Because of decreased availability and increased demand in scientific research, platinum remains expensive, like gold. Decreased-increased pair. Like instead of like of. Removes errors in original and does not introduce new ones. Correct.
d)Because of decreased availability and increased demand for scientific research, platinum remains expensive, like gold. Demand here is due to an action, does not belong to that action. Incorrect.
e)Because of decreased availability and greater demand in scientific research, platinum remains at a consistently high price, like that of gold. Greater is back. That in like that is redundant. Incorrect.

Thanks for sharing. :)

D says "demand for scientific research" which means that demand of gold is necessary for scientific research. But the intent of the sentence is that demand has increased as gold will be used in scientific research. This intent is expressed in C.
