OA is C

Please remove the OA from the non Spoiler section of the OP. Thanks!

I ruled out D and E because of "with". - non essential modifies use ", which .. , "
A & B are incorrect because of "it " it is singular and referring to profits which is plural.

Leaves C correct.

Hi, Thanks for the link!
It really helps.
But I still have one more question.
What does "falling over the last two years" modify?
I think it modifies "Profits".
Can someone help to confirm it?
Thanks^^
