Gonna have to go with C on this one.

Alike is usually used in the predicate. For example:

The revised curriculum was denounced by teachers and students alike.

The use of "alike" & "both" in A,B & C seem to be redundant with "and".

In D, "which are increasing" is redundant with "rise".

Will go with E.

I pick E

B and C distorts the intended meaning of the sentence.
A is redundant with both alike
