C is correct.

(A) Sinusitis will be more common than either arthritis or high blood pressure in 2000. >> Can't say this from given info

(B) Arthritis will be the most common chronic medical condition in 2000. >> Can't say this from given info

(C) The average age of people suffering from sinusitis will increase between 1987 and 2000. >> Note that passage says, average age of population will increase between 1987 - 2000. Passage also says that rate for sinusitis is the same for people of all ages. Additing these two data pointers, we can conclude C

(D) Fewer people will suffer from sinusitis in 2000 than suffered from it in 1987. >> Can't say this from given info

(E) A majority of the population will suffer from at least one of the medical conditions mentioned above by the year 2000. >> Too general.
