My Take,

As people become more and more aware of the dangers of water-borne diseases, the demand for mineral water is increasing at a rapid rate, bottled mineral water providing both easy transportability and assured water quality.

(A) is increasing at a rapid rate, bottled mineral water (Noun) providing (noun modifier) both easy transportability and assured water quality - correct choice
(B) has been increasing at a rapid rate, because of bottled mineral water both providing easy transportability and assuring water quality - we already have 'as'
(C) has increased at a rapid rate, since bottled mineral water provides both easy transportability and assures water quality - same as B
(D) will increase at a rapid rate because bottled mineral water provides both easy transportability and assured water quality - same as B
(E) increases at a rapid rate, with bottled mineral water providing both easy transportability and assuring water quality[/quote] - use of simple present is wrong - used to show habits or facts

A B and E have all the same problem: they do not have a verb in the sentence. Providing is not a verb, at most is providing.

So the answers boil down to C and D.

C, however, has increased at a rapid rate sounds like the water increases per se and not the rate. Moreover, it is a run on sentence with the comma before because.

D is the answer
