I think B or C and would probably go with C, but this one is tough for me.

I'm not sure you need "as fast" because "rate of increase" implies this, hence my choice of C.

Tough one. My initial pick was C because I felt that rate does not need to have fast again.

How ever, I was not sure. I thought about B & D which do compare the rate to rate. Also For a moment, focused on it and tried to see what it is referring to and see if it has a clear referent. I was wondering if it can illogically still refer to minority population and leaned towards D. In the end picked C
