A-which is wrong
B-Then - awkward
C-correct
D-which is wrong
E-Then is not suitable here.

The logical meaning of the sentence:

..whether there will be an end to the pattern according to which a social n/w attains an unprecedented number of customers and then that social n/w is dethroned by a new company with different product.

A) "which" makes a wrong reference; the customers are not dethroned.

B) Instead of the comma, there should a connector such as "and". As per the logical meaning of the sentence, a pattern is presented and the components of the pattern must be connected via connector(s).

C) Strikes to me as a pattern and thus is the sentence logical.

D) The customer is not dethroned. "which" makes a wrong reference.

E) The option changes the meaning of the sentence by making the "slightly different product" of the other company a reason for dethroning. It is not as per the logic of the sentence.

Thus, option C.

A. customers, which is dethroned by a new company with a slightly different product concept - Which incorrectly refers to customers

B. customers, then is dethroned by a new company with a slightly different product concept - , then is awkward construction

C. customers but is dethroned by a new company with a slightly different product concept - But clearly introduces a contrast and is most concise answer choice.

D. customers, which is dethroned by a new company that has a slightly different product concept - Which incorrectly refers to customers

E. customers and then is dethroned because a new company has a slightly different product concept - Here BECAUSE appears to modify NOUN whereas it should always modify a verb. DUE TO is used as NOUN Modifier
