C is definitely the correct answer. I dont have a good explanation though.

I think in order to maintain parallelism you have to use the past participle - Increased.

Any one with an explanation?

vksunder for u...

increasing uses wrong tense...so eliminate A, B and E

between C and D, they both use the correct tense, but to maintain parallelism....we dont need the before increased.

(A) increasing the pressure
(B) the increasing pressure
(C) increased pressure
(D) the increased pressure
(E) the pressure increasing



less lending || increased pressure || more pressure

lending ---gerund acting as noun
less --- adjective modifying the noun
pressure --noun
increased - ajectve modifying the noun

another e.g
"at increased risk for heart disease" (i.e augumented risk)

Hope this will help!!

So C is the correct answer.
