I think it's D, because demand should be followed by 'for' and 'consistently‘ is superfluous.

The right choice would be between B and E. as all others are comparing Noun Gold with Expensiveness of Platinum. I think it should be "B" as the message from the sentence coming from, Availability of Platinum is already less, increased in demand make it consistently expensive.

Kinldy correct if I am worng.

The official explanation that choice C brings out a cause and effect relationship is illogical. Please note the word, arguably. It is still debatable whether the town is the best-preserved medieval town. While so, how can we take that it was granted a status of World Heritage. Does anyone give a site a heritage status, because it is still argued to be whether best preserved or not.
In addition, a World Heritage title is given not because a site is well maintained but because it is ancient.
