Increased & doubled redundant => A, B out.
Action happening after another action founded then increased => has increased. D & E out.

good question. I fell for D but I agree D is awkward and incorrect.

C should be.

I hate this one!
Ok, the clue is ",and its advertising". SO we need a noun before the comma to maintain parallelism.
that leaves C,D
C- has doubled - since the event is progressive,so I choose this one
D-doubled- implied that it was not progressive

I selected C depending on my ear. Didn't consider the progressive bit. Please can you elaborate?
