 A.

steadily, and this 

 B.

steadily: which 

 C.

 E.

 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(C) is correct

Both which and this should refer to a specific noun. Since the first part of the sentence does not provide a suitable noun, we must introduce a word such asincrease or trend. D is incorrect as it uses a comma to link two sentences.
