ans: C
severe describes the characterstics of critics, thus we can't use it as an adverb. Should be used as an adjective. Numerous (adjective) modified by 'increasingly'. 'Deficiencies' in the original sentence is redundant.

D and E --> Severely ...numerous critics.. Huh!!

DJ,
I have seen an example in the Oxford Dictionery - Severely critical report. Severely - adverb, critical - adjective and Report - noun.

Going by the analogy - What is wrong with "Severely numerous critics"?
Severely - adverb, numerous - adjective ane Critics - noun. In that case we need to consider D & E. D is out because, "seeming" should be followed by a noun. Example : - a seeming contradiction. So the answer boils down to E.

nothing is wrong with 'Severly numerous critics'. here, severely modifies 'numerous (critics)' and that is prefect.
But in the given context "numerous (adj.)" modifies critics, thus "Severe" should be used as an adjective to make the sentence parallel.

Severe (adj) and ... numerous (adj) critics...

Hope this is clear.
