From the question, I would immediately cross out B, C and E because the sentence begins with "despite." Therefore, "however" and "yet" become redundant. Leaving A and D. From A and D, I would select D because it correctly uses "has" with "the proportion."

Any further advice is appreciated!

Since "Despite" is already there in the starting we don't need any other word for comparision...so (B),(c) and (E) are out
Left with (A) and (D).. since "the propotion" is singular so "have not risen" is wrong..it should be "has not risen"...so (D) is the correct answer.
