(A) increase in the incidence of malaria caused by increasing mosquito resistance against
(B) increase in the incidence of malaria because of increasing resistance of mosquitoes to





(A) increase in the incidence of malaria caused by increasing mosquito resistance against
if you switch the clauses around, A does nto make sense.

increasing mosquito resistance against caused by [b]increase in the incidence of malaria
