I will go with A.

My explanation:

C, D and E are out because 'which' modifies 'increase' and it is wrong.
I reject B because of 'has done'. This means that the increase in the dollar value has been completed.
A is right because 'continue to' and 'has been' are consistent.

First of all C,D and E are clearly out because "which" cannot refer to an idea or entire sentence preceding it. It has to refer to an antecedent. Usually it refers to a noun immidiately preceding it. Therefore "which" is in apropriate here.

Let us evaluate B.

"done" means already over. I think it is inapropriate here. The sentence after "has been" clearly ellipses "doing" or "increasing". This is correct because it shows continual action as mentioned by earlier part of the sentence by words "continue to".Moreover "as"" is used to compare actions.

I believe A should be correct.

B has to be wrong for a simple reason. Is the value of dollar doing some action here. Value of dollar is increasing or has been increasing. "Value of doallar has increased" is not same as "has done" I think these two are completely unparallel.

A is absoutely correct.

B,C, D, E --> "which" does not have a clear antecedent.
"which has/have" is correct "which it" is redundant.

A says "The value of dollar has done[=increased] since interest rates began to rise.

"has done" a present perfect is correct usage here.

The question is from gmatplus2 - SC number 30.

Is it really a flaw ?

Dharmin, "which" refers to "increase" and is clearly wrong. It must be between A and B. I picked B and second Kpadma's explanation

Yes, I meant B; I was confused because A was not repeated in the answer

"which has/have" is correct "which it" is redundant.

A says "The value of dollar has done[=increased] since interest rates began to rise.

"has done" a present perfect is correct usage here.

Paul u forget to count my vote, i vouched for "A" in the stem itself
Well,
(B) The value of dollar has done[=increased] since interest rates began to rise.
(A) The value of dollar has been[=increasing] since interest rates began to rise.

I think " Since " propose tighter dovetail as "has been increasing since..." compare to "has increased since"

However, "done" in the second choice kept a proxy for "increased" whereas in first choice "has been" dont have any proxy for "ing" form.

B seems more persuasive now !
What's say ANAND?
