For E to work, it would need to say something like this:

Digital remastering, the process by which blah blah blah, is increasingly common.

As it is, we never finish the sentence. We just say "Digital remastering," put a modifier, and end. All the verbs ("are converted . . . , edited . . . , and filtered") apply to "recordings." DR is the process by which recordings are converted, edited, and filtered.

I solved this problem by first eliminating A and B. As daagh pointed out, it's redundant to say "the process is the method" or "the process is the way." Other than that, A worked just fine, so I looked for a choice that fixed the redundancy while keeping the nice parallel list of verbs. C was the only one that worked.

option E --> there is no verb for the Subject Digital mastering. Everything that follows after the comma is a modifier modifying the subject. That is why E is wrong.

that means Edited acts as a verb of digital files instead of digital remastering ..

OE:

In the original sentence, the use of both “the process” and “the method” creates an unnecessary
repetition. Both refer to the same digital remastering procedure; only one reference to this procedure
is needed.

(A) This choice is incorrect as it repeats the original sentence.

(B) The use of both “the process” and “the way” creates an unnecessary repetition. Both refer to the
same digital remastering procedure; only one reference to this procedure is needed.

(C) CORRECT. This choice uses only one reference to the digital remastering procedure: “the process.”
Also, “process by which” is concise and idiomatically sound.

(D) “Digital remastering occurs when…” changes the meaning of the sentence. This phrasing implies
that digital remastering occurs as a result of the converting, editing, and filtering of the analog sound
recordings. However, the intended meaning is that the process of digital remastering is the converting,
editing, and filtering of these recordings.

(E) The subject “digital remastering” lacks a main verb, resulting in an incomplete sentence. The
subject is modified by “the process by which analog sound recordings are converted…and filtered to
enhance the overall quality of the sound,” but this non-essential modifier cannot substitute for a main
action.
