We are told that mobile homes are gaining favor as something to increasingly expensive conventional housing.

The fact that it is gaining favor means it is replacing conventional housing, as people are choosing it (over conventional housing) after a slow sales start early in the year.

The best word for the blank is substitute and it is alternative (Choice D) from the list of choices.
