Option A is:

The consistent rising revenues of the shipping company has convinced...

1. Consistent is an adjective, and it modifies the noun revenues. This means that the revenues are consistent. That is not the correct meaning (consistent means that something remains the same, or happens the same way).

2. Unlike the noun rise, which is singular, revenues is plural. However, the verb has convinced is singular.
