Imo D.
Like establishes a comparison.

Unprecedented growth has to be compared with a comparable thing. From the options only plausible options are C and D. C has an error- 'caused' and 'due to' together are wrong.

Hence D.

But again I am new to this. Looking forward to a good discussion

This is a case of comparison. Unprecedented growth has to be compared with the tech growth . Options A,B and E lack comparisons. Option C contains "both" and "as well as", such usage is wrong. Hence option D is correct.

A) technology made rapid progress in the second half of the twentieth century as a result of increased funding for both organizational as well as
B) that technology made rapid progress in the second half of the twentieth century was due to the increase in funding for organizational and
C) the rapid technological progress in the second half of the twentieth century was caused due to increased funding for both organizational as well as
D) the rapid progress of technology in the second half of the twentieth century was a result of increased funding for organizational as well as
E) technology made rapid progress in the second half of the twentieth century because there was an increase in funding for both organizational and

Options A, B and E can be easily eliminated.

'Due To' is incorrectly modifying 'was caused' in option C.

So D is the correct answer.

"Like the unprecedented growth" -> " the rapid progress"
"both...as well as" is incorrect.
D is the answer.
