    Welcome to the board, Sara.

    More context is needed to answer questions 1 and 2 - at least full sentences rather then fragments.

    3. a priori

    4. increases

    5. works (if those three numbers refer to separate works)

    1) You'd probably be better off using 'studies' instead of work. Also, I'd cut the 'previous.'
    2) ?
    3) A priori but I wouldn't use it as it's latin and not too commonly used in English. I'd use prior to instead.
    4) It depends. If you're talking about the total increasing then it's increases. If you're talking about the increase when everything's added together it's the total increase.
    5) works.
