I would go with A, "incidence of malaria caused by" and "resistance against"

853. There has been a 30- to 40-fold increase in the incidence of malaria caused by increasing mosquito resistance against pesticides.

(A) increase in the incidence of malaria caused by increasing mosquito resistance against
(B) increase in the incidence of malaria because of increasing resistance of mosquitoes to ANSWER
(C) increasing malaria incidence because of increasing resistance of mosquitoes to
(D) incidence of malaria increase caused by increasing mosquito resistance against
(E) incidence of malaria increase because of increased mosquito resistance to

A quick way to eliminate is based on the idiom 'resistance to.'

That leaves us with (B), (C), and (E). (E) is redundant, 'increase...increase'. You have a 30 - to 40-fold 'increase in' not 'increasing' so we can get rid of (C). That leaves us with (B).

Malaria cannot be caused by resistance of mosquito. However resistance of mosquito can be one of the reason why incidence of malaria is increasing. Hence B

C, D, E are awkward.

Between A and B, IMO the answer is B.

Reason:
A: "resistance against pesticides" is ambiguous, and hurts the meaning of the sentence.
B: "resistance ...to pesticides" is more clear.

OA please.

Thanks,
