enrollments is plural (A&B out) and we need a continuous tense (C out)

in E, that lacks a clear referent and breaks parallelism by using simple past

D is correct

Hi mates,

IMO D

Enrollments is plural, therefore A and B out.

C out: since needs present perfect.

D out becuase of //ism

OA and Source?

Cheers

Guys, it seems that in D enrollments are compared to "while the number of other stydents"...
thus I choose E instead of D.

(E) is needlessly clunky, and the use of the verb "fell" is incorrect. "Has fallen" is the proper form.

+1 D

That's why:

(A) has steadily increased, while the number of other students who enter the field has fallen - Subject-verb agreement error. Enrollments need HAVE.
(B) has steadily increased, while other students entering the field have declined in number - The same error.
(C) increased steadily, while there was a decline in the number of other students entering the field - "Since" needs present perfect (HAVE), not simple past.
(D) have steadily increased, while the number of other students entering the field has fallen - CORRECT
(E) have steadily increased, while that of other students who enter the field fell. - It should be THOSE to refer the enrollments.

I think I deserve kudos 8-)
