A

1) "are" is required; so that eliminated B and E
2) We need a modifier that modifies "business travel". A does this correctly.

I mean, as per Manhattan SC, when the subject of a sentence is an -Ing phrase, it always requires a singular verb form...

The subject of the sentence is "revenues." "Declining" isn't the subject, it's a modifier.
