(D)..

(A): .....they have also been blamed for causing hundreds of deaths, (causing) injury to thousands, and (causing) seriously damaging the nation's recreational areas.

It is clearly wrong. "causing seriously damaging"

(C): wrong : "and" is missing.

(E): causing hundreds of death, thousands are injured, and they do serious damage to....
Not parallel.

(B): wrong: ....they have also been blamed for causing hundreds of deaths and injuring thousands, and serious damage to the nation's recreational areas.

Sentences Structure is like this:
They have been blamed for:
1. causing hundreds of death. (OK)
2. injuring thousands. (OK)
2. damage to the nation's recreational areas. (Not parrallel)

Clearly, parallelism is tested here.
In (A), hundreds of death, injury to thousands, and damaging the nation's recreational area is not parallel.
(B) is also not parallel. Apart from not being parallel, (B) also uses a clumsy construct.
(C) - not parallel too.
(D) - prallel and correctly phrased.
(E) - not parallel, and 'are injured' is in the present tense. This contradicts with the present pefect tense in the ealier non-underlined part of the sentence.

D it is. And as lastochka puts it, choice D is indeed a slam-dunk

Two parallel elements.

for causing ...... as well as doing .....

Two another parallel sub-elements.

hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries
