I think it's (E)

'If' and 'not accompanied' is better than 'when' and unaccompanied respectively.

Rising inventories should be accompanied by plural verb 'lead' and this leaves us with the choices A, C and E

and clearly we can say that the answer is E due to awkward sentence construction in A and C

My Choice E

"if" is used for to introduce "conditions" - refer Sahil's grammar notes

Choice is narrowed down to D & E. D incorrectly introduces an adverb - "correspondingly increased sales"

E is correct in all respect

easy E; however, "to" should be out of underline ... "lead to" is the correct idiom ...

Clearly E as When is used in reference of time. D is grammatically wrong

When is used in reference to time.

I was about to leave the house when John knocked at my door.
When did you meet John?
If introduces a condition so use of can or could is required.
So E, I hope it clarifies.
Correspondingly I think is wrong english. Can anybody enlighten on the use of correspondingly.

I like E.

Correspondingly is not a wrong english, it can be used in place of "likewise", "also", "in the same way", "equally" etc.

Amardeep

I looked for meaning of 'correpondingly' in the Oxford Advances learner's dictionary. It's an adverb while corresponding is advective. So, Use of correpondingly here is wrong.

E looks good to me
