Confused between E and C

I will go with C just because its keeping the tense simple.

(B) declined steadily during the first six months of this year but virtually remain unchanged

(D) declined steadily during the first six months of this but have remained virtually unchanging’
(E) declined steadily during the first six months of this year but have remained virtually unchanged


i will go with E because we have change of time sequence. The first should be in the past tense and the second should be in the present perfect tense

A- wrong
B-wrong
C-wrong
D- wrong because of virtually unchanging "ackward"
E- right
