1) C
2) A... i think this describes a sequence of events rather than a contrasting argument, so go with A.

OA?

2. C "regains its former status" is idiomatic

Don't you think usage of both "regains" and "again" is redundant???

Also, the context is important in both the sentences

1) have reduced sickness, sleeping on the job, fatigue among shift workers, and have raised production efficiency in various industries.
Reduced and raised can't be part of the same list (especially when we are saying reduced A,B,and C. it's incorrect to say reduced a,b,and raised z).

2) what decline and what never gained status

D) who declines in reputation after death and who never regained popularity again
(it can be the person itself, so we need option C that implicitly states what is declined and what is not gained after XYZ's death
