(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.

A is wrong because "averaging" modifies Turkey's economy. It changes the meaning and should be left out. B is wrong because it is stated the "year which is about eight percent". C and E are wrong because there is no connection between the first and the second clause. They need a connection to give some meaning to the whole sentence. Therefore D must be. The underlined part in D, which is phrase, modifies the main clause of the sentence.

I choose D.
A - Incorrect. Use of 'increase'
B - Incorrect. Too long. Wordy.
C - Incorrect.
E - Incorrect. Use of 'increase'
