Not sure about A and B. Seems like "it" is needed before "will". C is definitely wrong since it talks aobut employed rather than unemployed. D sounds the best to me, only it didn't have the word "slightly" there. E has an incomplete clause that led by "that".

I think I'll pick D.

actually you can have a number.....grow I think.

e.g The number of people taking the GMAT has grown tremendously.

BUT you cant have a something grow to a LEVEL. you RISE to a LEVEL, since Level implies a hierarchy of layers.

I also pick D

Well, I am a little confused here. I only know although must have a clause after it.
This one reads like:
The number of unemployed truck drivers is expected although not to levels experienced in the last few years

Can anybody explain why A and B are not correct? Is "it" really the issue as HongHu mentioned or something else?

Wow, that is a lot of omitted words there. How can we know in general? Ellipsis sometime can be wrong.
