This question focuses more on 'intending' meaning rather than grammatical errors. The author implied that people are hoping that an increase in the way consumers spend will most likely benefit the economy.

Option A - Incorrect
This choice of answer is incorrect as it depicts that a projection would likely improve the economy which is not the meaning intended by the author.

Option B - Incorrect
This is not accurate because it talks about projection and not consumer spending itself.

Option C - Incorrect
This is talking about a projection even though it is in the past tense

Option D - Incorrect
Although this is close to what 'intended implies' but the hope lies only in consumers spending that increases that year not all consumer spending increasing.

Option E - Correct
This is the ideal choice of answer because it passes the information that for improvement to occur, all consumer must increase.
