There is a clear difference in meaning between options A & E..(between "when" and "if"...the latter meaning conditional, which incidentally is the intended meaning of the sentence)

Further, the word corresponding should be used as an adjective to modify the noun increase. In A, correspondingly, incorrectly modifies the verb unaccompanied.

Hello Argha,

I understood the flaws that you have explained. In short, it is like....
# When something is not accompanied, will lead to another thing --- this is wrong
# If something is not accompanied, will lead to another thing --- this is correct

Under what circumstances would the usage of WHEN actually be correct ?? Could you please give some examples
