A. tripled, the higher cost had brought – a run on
B tripled because the higher cost brought - no cause and effect involved; even so tripling was not the effect of the inefficiency; it must be otherwise.
C. tripled with the higher cost bringing ---1. 'With' denotes a physical accompaniment.
2. Looks as if tripling were the effect of the inefficiency of internal combustion

D. tripled, the higher cost brought ---- a run on
E. tripled and the higher cost brought -- correct choice with proper conjunction

Answer E looks much better then other ones, BUT comma between two clauses (price tripled, and cost brought) is missed.
("tripled, and the higher cost brought").

Completely agree with explanations. I'd like to add. The first sentence is run on sentence - two independented clauses witout FUNBOYS

Do we need a comma after 'and' on answer E?

Cheers
