orders hence we want continue. This rules out A,B.
in D I see that an is missing before increase.
So, I pick E.

IMO E.
orders will take plural verb so "continue". A and B out
parallelism - that and that - D out
Between C and E, I feel E is good because prediction can not take simple verb.

E -- parallel..and present perfect tense is appropiate here..
becuase predicted that orders continue to decline.. that is on going process..

between B and E

E seems better
since the original tense is present perfect, no altered tense unless strong proof

E for me.

'has been' is appropriate for something that is continuing
