+1 for B.

Error tested : Pronoun Ambiguity

(A) it might have been expected for it to rise

(B) it might have been expected to rise --> Correct, rectifies pronoun ambiguity

(C) it might have been expected that it should rise

(D) its rise might have been expected --> Awkward

(E) there might have been an expectation it would rise --> Awkward

Hence, B.

(A) it might have been expected for it to rise.......second use of 'it' incorrect

(B) it might have been expected to rise- 'it' correctly modifying nearby 'revenue and construction is also fine - correct

(C) it might have been expected that it should rise......again double use of 'it' - incorrect

(D) its rise might have been expected....'its' is not parallel with ' revenue'

(E) there might have been an expectation it would rise - Awkward construction
