A- correlate positively to - Use of plural verb CORRELATE for singular subject INCIDENCE is incorrect. Moreover, CORRELATE TO Idiomatically incorrect. Hence Incorrect.
B- are correlated positively to - - Use of plural verb ARE for singular subject INCIDENCE is incorrect. Moreover, CORRELATE TO Idiomatically incorrect. Hence Incorrect.
C- correlate positively with - - Use of plural verb CORRELATE for singular subject INCIDENCE is incorrect. Hence Incorrect.
D- are positively correlated to - Use of plural verb ARE for singular subject INCIDENCE is incorrect. Placement of POSITIVELY changes the original intent. Moreover, CORRELATE TO Idiomatically incorrect. Hence Incorrect.
E- correlates positively with - CORRECT

E is the correct answer

"incidence" needs singular verb, E is the only answer with "correlates"
