The correct answer is A. The appropriate idiomatic expression is aim at + gerund (increasing, improving, doing, etc.). Therefore we can eliminate C, D, and E for using unidiomatic forms. As well, we have a Parallel Construction problem with the two verbs increasing and improving. B has increasing... to improve. C gives us the increase... to improve. D has increasing...with the improvement, and in E we have to increase... improving. Only A has the grammatical increasing... improving.
