"a consequence of" is the correct idiom and it modifies "hearing impairment"

Yes, choice A is best. "A consequence of" is always used, not "consequence from."

A - Correctly use of idiom "consequence of."
B - "A consequence from" uses the wrong idiom.
C - The use of "consequence" and "resulted" is redundant.
D - "Damaged" illogically modifies "hearing impairment."
E - See D above.

pls correct me if i am wrong in eliminating an ans

first if i am not aware of the idiom then

A) seems flaw less (so keep it as a contender)
B) wrong modification as it appears as if hearing impairment is a consequence of sitting for long periods times
and ofcourse if sme one is aware of -wrng idiom
C) consequence and resulted bth are same and thus redundant
D) hearing impairment and damage are redundant
E) same as D

pls comment if my way of eliminations contains any error

i think to be perfect it is necessary to understand y am i eliminating an ans
