From 1965 on, Yugoslavia’s standard of living has soared, but unemployment and prices too.
(A) but unemployment and prices too
(B) and also unemployment and prices
(C) but so have unemployment and prices
(D) and so also unemployment and prices
(E) but so did unemployment and prices

I got this right, but couldn't justify why one is better over another.

But is required, eliminate B and D.

C sounds better than A.

I think it is C. :?:
