C seems correct.
I think 'being' is used correctly here. :roll:

Agree 'C' it is.

Because the enemy’s new ship is the quietest and therefore the most elusive submarine, it is being increasingly viewed by the military as a threat to security.

B --> 'has increased the view' is awkward
D --> 'increasing view' is awkward
E --> 'being' is not needed
A --> 'it is' is not needed

C is the best

(A) and it is therefore the most elusive submarine, it is being increasingly viewed
---> "it is" is redundant! --> out

(B) it is therefore the most elusive of submarines, and it has increased the view
---> "it is" is redundant! Besides, the abrupt "and" interrupts the causual meaning of the sentence. --> out

(C) and therefore the most elusive submarine, it is being increasingly viewed
---> fine!

(D) and therefore it is the most elusive of submarines, there is an increasing view
---> "it is" is redundant! Besides, "view" of what?! --> out
(E) therefore being the most elusive of submarines, it is increasingly viewed
---> "being" makes the sentence redundant. --> out

C is the best.

we don't need "it is" again after "therefore".
