I think we should use whose instead of which coz whose+ noun.
D and E are left. I vote for E coz it uses that of to refer to industrial growth.

E is my pick too..


A) where industrial growth in the nineteenth century was more rapid than any other American city
- wrong comparison
(B) which had industrial growth in the nineteenth century more rapid than that of other American cities
- usage of had Industrial growth does not convey the meaning properly..
(C) which had growth industrially more rapid than any other American city in the nineteenth century
- comparing the growth with ONLY 19th centurt cities..
(D) whose industrial growth in the nineteenth century was more rapid than any other American city
- same as A... Need THAT of to make the comparison clear.
(E) whose industrial growth in the nineteenth century was more rapid than that of any other American city

I picked A because I thought "whose" is used when referring to people only. Chicago is a place, therefore I immediatley eliminated D and E

I choose A because "where" should be used to describe a place.

I like E. "Whose" isn't confined to just people, that I know, but not sure of all accepted usages.

E is the only logical comparison that makes sense.

A could be right if the comparison were proper. in A you are comapring the the industrial growth with other cities. You need to compare the industrial growth in chicago with the industrial growth in any other city.

Yes, the OA is E.

I thought the OA was wrong because i thought that whose was only used
for people so for me it was only the choice A but as ritesh points out, the comparison is faulty. Nice explaining Ritesh and thanks all for your input!
