The choices B,D and E have very awkward formations. Choice C changes the intended meaning of the sentence.

We have a clear winner, A!

Say the annual increases were:
1995--->1996: x%
1996--->1997: y%
1997--->1998: z%

The values of x, y and z are between 12 and 16.

Hi, Sales increased between 12% and 16% annually means the increase was anywhere from 12% to 16%. It could be 14%, it could be 15.5 etc. Thus, the average range is given to us.

I hope this makes sense. If not, let me know what is not clear.

A is a clear choice here.

Just a thought: Don't we need comma between --> From 1995 to 1998 and the average daily retail sales of women’s apparel

Yes, I think there should be comma there. May be it is a typo.
