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

Paul/Supercat - your prudence on this question will be appreciated

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?

IMO the appositives here add more information to "rise in applications"

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.
