+1 for D

A. reported recently that cardiovascular disease nearly accounted for 18 million deaths worldwide in 2015, a number forecasted by 2030 to increase to more than 23 million annually

B. reported recently that cardiovascular disease nearly accounted for 18 million deaths worldwide in 2015 and forecasted to increase to more than 23 million annually by 2030 - Meaning error

C. recently reported that cardiovascular disease accounted in 2015 for nearly 18 million deaths worldwide and forecasted by 2030 to increase to more than 23 million annually - Same as B

D. recently reported that cardiovascular disease accounted for nearly 18 million deaths worldwide in 2015, a number forecasted to increase to more than 23 million annually by 2030 - Correctly modifies 18 million deaths

E. recently reported that cardiovascular disease nearly accounted for 18 million deaths worldwide in 2015, forecasted to increase by 2030 to more than 23 million annually

Only D provides the intended meaning

1+ for D.
A number must refer to 18 million because that is what will increase notcardiovascular disease.
But I have a little doubt in D also, I think noun + noun modifier should be used to refer 18 million. ( A number :- noun , forecasted ..... Modifier) but why that is missing.

Please clarify.

A. reported recently that cardiovascular disease nearly accounted for 18 million deaths worldwide in 2015, a number forecasted by 2030 to increase to more than 23 million annually --> "nearly 18M deaths" is correct & "nearly accounted" is wrong

B. reported recently that cardiovascular disease nearly accounted for 18 million deaths worldwide in 2015 and forecasted to increase to more than 23 million annually by 2030

C. recently reported that cardiovascular disease accounted in 2015 for nearly 18 million deaths worldwide and forecasted by 2030 to increase to more than 23 million annually

D. recently reported that cardiovascular disease accounted for nearly 18 million deaths worldwide in 2015, a number forecasted to increase to more than 23 million annually by 2030 --> correct: D is better than C

E. recently reported that cardiovascular disease nearly accounted for 18 million deaths worldwide in 2015, forecasted to increase by 2030 to more than 23 million annually

'A number forecasted to increase' refers to a future occurrence. 18 million deaths in 2015 is a past event. A future estimate cannot be attributed to past
