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

OA after some discussion

[Reveal] Spoiler:
note the for vs in

less /greater does not indicate reduction/increase from earlier time-frame


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.

Can someone elaborate more on the differences between the options A, C and D? I am not clear with the above available explanations.

Because of less availability and greater demand for scientific research, platinum remains consistently expensive, like gold.

(A) Because of less availability and greater demand for scientific research, platinum remains consistently expensive, like gold.
The usage of greater here is incorrect as the correct usage of greater is with nouns that themselves act as numbers. So this choice is incorrect.
Is the usage of consistently not correct here?

(C) Because of decreased availability and increased demand in scientific research, platinum remains expensive, like gold.

(D) Because of decreased availability and increased demand for scientific research, platinum remains expensive, like gold.
I picked this option though.

Can someone explain the difference between the usage of demand in and demand for for the options C and D?
