    The only things that ARE a result of sprawl are Urban Gentrificiation (as the sprawl spreads the middle declines and then gets gentrified) and the loss of agricultural land (the sprawl eats up land).

    So to answer the question, the others are more descriptive of satellite (that is isolated) development which is distinct from sprawl, making A D and E your answers. (B would apply to both isolated development and sprawl)

      As Anon says - there is never an absolute answer to questions of that sort. The two initially obvious ones are A and E, but the more you think about them the less obvious they become.
