"are" is needed. So it is D or E.

"while" in E proposes contrast, which is not necessary.

Hence D

"are" is needed. So it is (D) or (E)
Should be (D)
Again (E) is not correct because of the Verb Tense. Incase of (E) "has plumetted" is "Present Perfect" .Hence "are" is incorrect usage here.
In (D) "plumetting", "becoming" are "Present Progressive Tense" Hence the verb "are" is parallel with this.
