Easily go with B and C.

Note that the subject is plural, so C is out. B left.

A. communicates more easily than never before and indicated -never is wrong
B. communicates more easily than ever before and indicated -Correct
C. communicates more easily than ever before and indicates -incorrect parallelism (indicated is required)

my friend whenever you attempt a SC question always look out for the non underlined part.In this question a parallelism is created between the verb have ensured and (have) indicated.You can drop the verb have in the second part.So the verb must be indicated but not indicates.So C is wrong.

Nonetheless there seems to be an error in the non-underlined part - without "that" after "ensured", "world" becomes the object of "ensured": X, Y and Z did not ensure the world - they ensured easier communication.

In the real test it is expected that "that" would be there after "ensured", thereby eliminating the object error stated above and moreover augmenting the parallelsim. ("ensured that" and "indicated that").

Moreover there is really no solid ground to eliminate C - "indicates" can as well be parallel with "have ensured".

How indicates can go parallel with have indicated?
Here indicates stands as a verb for a singular subject.Which one in this particular question qualify as the singular main subject?
