A and B are out. 'has' is not the right tense for enrollments
C is awkward with 'while there was a decline in the number of other students entering the field'. I'm not comfortable with the continuous tense 'entering'
Between D and E, I'll take D. E uses 'fell' which is not parallel with the perfect tense used earlier.

D for me.

X, Y, and Z is plural so the verb has to be 'have' not 'has'. so a and B are out.

'X has increased' is a main clause but 'X increased' is not. so there is no main clause in choice C.

'that of other students' is a akward construction.

I dont think either of the statements above are right. Please correct me

>>In C : Even without "have" the sentence is still Independent. However "Have" is MANDATORY ( Right??? ) because SINCE is used

>>In E : That refers to "enrollments "

I know that Ans is D, please clear the above. Thanks

enrollements is plural, we need 'have steadily increased' --> A,B out

C --> simple past 'increased steadily' does not show progressive nature of the enrollment of Afro Americans, American Indians and Hispanic Americans

E --> out. simple past 'fell' is incorrect for the reason stated above.

D is the best choice.

Yup ..undisputed.. D .. continuous nature of the sentence, agreement of subject with verb and parallelism lead us to D..

This may be a silly question, but for D, is it ok that 'enrollments' (pl.) is being contrasted against the 'the number of other students' (sing.)?
