Because of less availability and greater demand for scientific research, platinum remains consistently expensive, like gold.

a) Because of less availability and greater demand for scientific research, platinum remains consistently expensive, like gold.-Consistently and remains so redundant
b) Because of less availability and increased demand for scientific research, platinum remains consistently expensive, like that of gold.-Consistently and remains so redundant
c) Because of decreased availability and increased demand in scientific research, platinum remains expensive, like gold.-the first part has to talk about platinum so it has to be demand in research(for platinum-implied)
d) Because of decreased availability and increased demand for scientific research, platinum remains expensive, like gold.-demand for research sub becomes research so wrong
e) Because of decreased availability and greater demand in scientific research, platinum remains at a consistently high price, like that of gold.-forget it

I have a serious doubt here.

Doesn't the use of decreased / increased over the use of less / greater respectively changes the meaning of original sentence ?

How can 'remains' and 'consistently' be redundant.

Redundant means, if one of the words is removed the other should be able to stand on it's own

if you remove 'remains', how can 'consistantly' stand on its own?

I agree, but consistently is an adverb and should modify the verb not noun "expensive" ==> It should be "consistently remains".
Opinion welcome !!

Agree with C

D) Because of decreased availability and [strike]increased[/strike] demand for scientific research, platinum remains expensive, like gold -- does using greater in place of increased here make D correct option?
