The nationâ€™s three military academies have seen a dramatic rise in applications, one fueled by a resurgence of patriotism, increasing tuition costs at private colleges, and improved recruiting by the academies.
(A) one fueled by a resurgence of patriotism, increasing tuition costs at private colleges, and improved recruiting by the academies
(B) one fueled by a resurgence of patriotism, tuition costs that have increased at private colleges, and academies improving their recruiting
(C) one fueled by a resurgence of patriotism, private colleges that increased their tuition costs, and recruiting improvements by the academies
(D) fueled by a resurgence of patriotism, tuition costs increasing at private colleges, and academies improving their recruiting
(E) fueled by a resurgence of patriotism, increasing tuition costs at private colleges, and academies improving their recruiting

I think this question is ambiguous .

I am also between A & E.
A - one fueled by X, Y & Z, not sure if 'one' is appropriate. Vithal any thoughts.
E - fueled by X, Y & academies.... - breaks parallelism.

On test day will probably go for A

here is my take:

in E, fueled by seems to convey that the military acads. have seen the rise fueled by X,Y and Z

A clears this ambuiguity by having a pronoun, referring to the rise in the applications

for eg:

I rushed to the theater, worried about the lost ring

I rushed to the theater, one painted in blue

IMO the structure is:

IC + appositives

struggle between A and E.

E is not parallel, so I will pick A even "one" looks suspicious to me.

A is best and I don't believe there is any ambiguity here.
"one" refers to the "rise" and the enumeration in A is succinct with a series of nouns. E breaks the parallellism with the last enumeration.

Vithal, i dont think the structure is IC + appositive. For an appositive, the amplication has to be right after the word its trying to amplify. And i dont think the amplication could be a "clause" Versus a "Phrase", although i'm not a 100% sure.

here one = pronoun. The structure is

IC, DC.

DC = one fueled by a resurgence of patriotism, increasing tuition costs at private colleges, and improved recruiting by the academies.

Anyone disagree with the IC, DC structure?

What is the OA? Is it A?

A is the only one which sticks to the parallel structure

I guess we are both saying the same thing. "one" refers to "rise". Only then will the SC make sense. Now the question is can an "appositive" be a "clause" and not a phrase? I've never seen an appositive used as a clause.
