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?

(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.
