A

This is a very good question indeed. Tests the parallelism b/w verb-ed modifiers and verb-ing modifiers.

The state’s three problem areas have seen a gradual decrease in severity, one curtailed by an expanded police budget, increasing wages in rural towns, and improved monitoring by federal workers.

I guess here "one" is doing the listing jog.
Three problem areas..............One curtailed by X,Y, and Z.......Two....By....S,T and U.........., and Three ...By.....

First of all - to discard D and E - curtailed can't modify severity. Because it is the past participial use of modifier after a comma.

Now once D and E are discarded the rest hinges on identifying the parallel structure.

I think "one" refers to one of the three problems. "Curtailed...............federal workers" explains how the severity got reduced.
