A&B have SVA error as increasing(adj.) demand(noun) is singular.

There is a cause and effect relationship hence if-then clause should be used. 'When' is incorrect eliminating D

We need to modify supply(noun) hence we need to use an adjective and not an adverb. Eliminating E

My choice is C

In choosing C over D, why would it be "if not" rather than "when not"?

Right - but that doesn't explain why "If" is correct and "When" isn't, which was my original question.

Thanks for the help!

"If" is used in condition .

examples- If you prepare well you will get a good score. So here there is a condition.

'When' should only be used for time references.

This is what Ron said.

"When ____" ALWAYS refers to the timeframe of "____".

E.g.,
When you return the goods, your money will be refunded.
If you return the goods, your money will be refunded.


"- The first sentence implies that your money will be refunded immediately when you return the goods. No delay. The refund occurs in the timeframe of the return--that's the point of "when".

"- The second sentence, on the other hand, carries no implication whatsoever about when the money will be given back.
This sentence can be true even if you have to wait months or years to get the money back!

Hopefully, this pair of sentences will give you an adequate understanding. (I honestly don't know any of the grammar terms in your post, so I'll have to pass over those.)
