IMO C is correct.

Looking at sentence :
The number ....... have increased ..... : Incorrect (should be "Number has increased")
This eliminates A,B

Now,
The meaning aspect says that 2013 has seen 22% increase compared to 2010
Option C ) maintains this comparison (CORRECT according to me)
Option D ) Is somewhat like "22% increase in 2013 but not 22% increase in 2010"
Meaning doesnt care if 22% increase was in 2010 all we need is 2013 has seen 22% more than 2010
Option E ) It says that number gradually increased from 2010 to 2013 by 22%
Again , meaning just contrasts the 2 years mentioned and doesnt say if it increased from 2010 by 22%

Please let me know if you find any flaw in reasoning/Ans

has vs have: choices A and B out as "the number" is a singular subject
there is no comparative marker ("more") to use "then", so C and D also out.
E is a correct choice.
a) have increased by 22% in 2013 as compared to 2010,
b) have increased by 22% from 2010 to 2013,
c) has increased by 22% in 2013 than 2010,
d) has increased by 22% in 2013 than in 2010,
e) has increased by 22% from 2010 to 2013,

E, coz the number of is singular

As compared to and As contrated to are wrong structures

When compared to and when contrasted to are wrong structures as well.
