Can you please explain the answer choices in the question. I understand why the correct answer is correct but I fail to pin point concrete error(s) in other choices.

(D) the responsibility of the owner is not that pollution
(E) the responsibility was not the owner’s that pollution would have


sc test meaning/logic more than grammar.
in a,
responsibility that pollution occured " makes no sense in our real world even if responsibility can go with "that" clause.
in B, the same as in A
in C, the same as in A, responsibility can not be " poluttion occur" . we have to say responsibility is that you do this job
in e. responsibility was not the owner.
