D.

b. "in the rise" - not idiomatic
c. "spending of administrations" - awkward phrase
e. "What with administrative spending still on the rise" - changes the meaning

between A and D i chose D because it is more concise.

C. Spending of the administration means that the administration is spending more. Administrative spending means spending on work related to the administration

"Spending of the administrators" would be much better than "Spending of the administrations"

It's a toss up between A & D. "A" sounds better but "D" is more concise. Do they have the exact same meanings? I don't think so...

<b>A</b>
