E
A and B definitely wrong, bcause they omitted main verb after "people"

C. In the last year,...there are...

D. "with the cost of.." can not modifies "many people". D means: Many people, with the cost of wireless ..., are

Correct me if I am wrong!

I came down to D and E because you need " Many people ARE" here and E is wrong because it has "Has Plummeted"

D would be the right choice...
