D and E can be discarded since in them fueled is modifying academies. Between A, B and C, one has to focus on parallelism. A would be my choice.

E.
parallelism

one in A/B/C is awkward. I could not understand its intended meaning.

E looks, to me. more parallel than D.
tuition costs increasing is D does not seem right

(D) and (E) are out due to the same reasoning as automan's.

(A) is the best.

- resurgence
- increasing cost
- improved recruiting

I am not too sure about this one...A sounds best....

while E is tempting, it does not have the proper modifiers..., fueld by, well who is fueld by?

A is the best choice..

A sounds most parallel, concise, and clear. E smells funny.

A. resurgence...,increasing,...and improved....

vs.

E. resurgence...,increasing, and academies

hmmm...I think A appears more parallel.

Is this from SC1000?

I was definitely lost with this one.
Can someone explain the use of "one" here ? I am unable to understand the difference of meaning between A/B/C and D/E.

I had the same confusion (about one) which prompted me to chose E.
May be automan/gamjating/fresinha12 shed some light?

I also chose E.

I thought A would be correct if it read as one fueled by a resurgence of patriotism, two increasing tuition costs at private colleges and three improved recruiting by the academies.

OK this is a classic || ism test type question

so read the question this way...

nations blah blah has seen blah blah, one fueled by a resurgence of patriotism,

nations blah blah has seen blah blah, one fueled by increasing tuition costs at private colleges

nations blah blah has seen blah blah, one fueld by improved recruiting by the academies...

as you can A is the only which maintains ||ism..

in E, the IC after and is messy...
