I choose A as well.

First you have to determine what is significant.

Is the 'increase' significant or is the 'integration' significant?

School integration plans that involve busing between suburban and central-city areas have contributed, according to a recent study, to significant increases in housing integration, which, in turn, reduces any future need for busing.

Were talking about multiple areas.

ex. The integration on the west side increases 10%, the integration on the south side increases 15% etc.

There are multiple increases that are significant.

C. increase housing integration significantly, which, in turn, reduces

D. increase housing integration significantly, in turn reducing

E. significantly increase housing integration, which, in turn, reduce


I choose A. You should have "reduces," thus eliminating D & E. B is worded incorrectly. C is incorrect because the "plans" did not "contribute to increase in housing."
