Turkeyâ€™s economy has grown prodigiously over the past ten years, averaging an annual increase each year that is about eight percentâ€”one of the highest growth rates in the world.

(A) averaging an annual increase each year that is about eight percent

(B) with an annual average each year which is about eight percent

(C) eight percent is what it averages out to each year

(D) with an average annual increase of about eight percent

(E) the average of the annual increase each year is about eight percent

I choose D.

A. annual increase and each year together is redundant

B. It should have been average annual increase. annual average increase changes the meaning.

C. the use of what it averages out is awkward

E. average annual increase each year.... is redundant.

so D is the correct choice.
