D.
contributed + infinitive
contributed to increase

C,D left

I guess D is prefereble as we use Present Participle (reducing) for cause-and-effect relationship.

C and D are out as both would not join up well with the non-underlined part of the passage

B is awkward with 'significant integration increases'

E uses the plural 'reduce' inappropriately

A is the best choice.

the use of 'significant' here merely serves to emphasize the proportion of the 'increase'. It's not just any ordinary increment, but a significant one.

I guess the correct usage is contribute + to + noun.

Thus, I pick (A).

A is not a case of split infinitive becasue increases is not a verb but a noun and the noun is modified by adjective significantly.

And A is correct.

IMO A is correct.

B - misplaced word order.
C- error in reference-which
D- in turn reducing
E- need adjective instead of adverb.

Well, I'm not an expert but it should be A.

I cross-checked on Manhattan site & the experts concur with A. You can Google the questions if the OA is not provided or if you're not convinced with the OA. Most of the questions are also discussed in other forums.

(A) significant increases in housing integration, which, in turn, reduces
(B) significant integration increases in housing, which, in turn, reduces -- "integration increases" doesn't make sense
(C) increase housing integration significantly, which, in turn, reduces -- misplaced "which"
(D) increase housing integration significantly, in turn reducing - adverb significantly is wrongly placed and distorts the intended meaning
(E) significantly increase housing integration, which, in turn, reduce -- S-V disagreement Singular subject "integration" and plural verb "reduce"
