i choose E. plummeting make falling redundant.
"or" is wrong in choice c and d.

have fallen and are falling is not fit here. when prices reach is good. I think.

The correct answer is E. The most straightforward path to this answer is that if we're already talking about plummeting, the use of the verb "falling" is redundant. This should serve as a reminder that for all the grammar challenge SC is touted to be, the clarity of meaning being conveyed by the sentence still remains incredibly important.
