A. steadily, and this ----- it is wrong to use the demonstrative pronoun nakedly without an accompanying noun

B. steadily: which - Which seems to take the role of an interrogative pronoun rather than relative pronoun. In addition, what follows the colon should describe the first clause, rather than posing another theme.

C. steadily; this trend ---- This is the right choice.

D. steadily, this increase --- a run-on

Conditionally eliminate A as it sounds rather silly.
Eliminate B for silliness with the colon.
C is not too shabby.
Eliminate D for silliness with the comma transition.
Eliminate E for silliness with steady.

C > A.
:. C
