I think "one" is necessary to properly restate the "dramatic rise." Between A, B, and C, only A lists the three constituents in parallel order.

I think it should be A. Its kind of A....., B, and C

Lets try this way:

1. ...fueled by a resurgence of patriotism,
2. ...fueled by increasing tuition costs at private colleges, (cause is increasing costs not the private colleges)
3. ...fueled by improved recruiting by the academies. (cause is improved recruitments not academies)

B. 1 is correct, 2 is incorrect because of "that have", 3 says "fueled by academies" changing the menaing.

C. 1 is correct, 2 says fueled by "private colleges" changing the meaning, 3 seems correct

D. 1 is correct, 2 is incorrect- should be "increasing tuition costs" instead of "tuition costs increasing", 3 says "fueled by academies" changing the meaning.

E. 1 is correct, 2 is correct, 3 says "fueled by academies" changing the menaing.

Can anyone throw some light on this?

Can someone explain the significance of "one" in this sentence?

As GMATT73 explained, "one" here is necessary. (Unbedingt!)

The fact that "the nation's three military academies have seen a dramatic rise in applications" is a phenomenon, and is referred by "one".

We know in GMAT land, we are not allowed to use 'which' to refer to a clause or a phrase. 'Which' is only used to refer to a word. Thus, "one" here is needed.

It would have been clearer if "a phenomenon" or "a situation" is used instead of "one".

Hope this helps.
