From 1965 on, Yugoslaviaâ€™s standard of living has soared, but unemployment and prices too.
(A) but unemployment and prices too
(B) and also unemployment and prices
(C) but so have unemployment and prices
(D) and so also unemployment and prices
(E) but so did unemployment and prices

I got this right, but couldn't justify why one is better over another.

My reasoning would be, since the first part of the sentence is in present perfect tense, why change the tense in second part of the sentence? Eliminate E.

But is required, eliminate B and D.

C sounds better than A.

I think it is C.
