SPLIT1) "SOARING" AND "RISEN" MEAN THE SAME THING, NO NEED TO SAY "RISEN". A, D AND E ARE OUT.

SPLIT2) B IS AWKWARD BECAUSE IT SAYS "OF" WHEN IT SHOULD SAY "FOR" AND "ARE A FORCE FOR" IS WORDY AND UNCLEAR. B IS OUT.

Though the idiomatic usage in A sounds correct the usage of soaring and risen in the same sentence makes it redundant ! The same applies to E.

B is awkward so knock that out straight away !

C is concise and sounds better.

State officials report that soaring rates of liability insurance have risen to force cutbacks in the operations of everything from local governments and school districts to day-care centers and recreational facilities.

(A) rates of liability insurance have risen to force - rates of is unidiomatic here ; have risen is redundant
(B) rates of liability insurance are a force for - rates of is unidiomatic here ; are a force for does not accurately convey the meaning that the soaring rates are actually forcing cutbacks in the present
(C) rates for liability insurance are forcing - Correct - it correctly uses the progressive verb form are forcing to indicate an ongoing situation.
(D) rises in liability insurance rates are forcing - rises is redundant
(E) liability insurance rates have risen to force - have risen is redundant

Answer C

IMO C.
Rate for is needed rather than Rate of.
Rate for - charged for.
Soaring -> Rising hence Rise is redundant.
are forcing - casual relationship . to force - intention, which is wrong in this scenario.

Only c corrects all these errors .

i did not pay attention to an important issue of "rate of" vs "rate for" in this question
soaring = rise => A and D are out.
B is passive and E has poor and awkward grammar.
