Although I had doubts after reading 'It', I would still go with B.

Let me try to explain this one. Ok, here we go.
First of all. We need clear THAT. So D and E are out ROTB. Now, let's check out ABC, mind you? So first take a look at the off-phrase. It seems as we are making a comparison here. So we want it to be parallel right? So this part environentalists who sought financial aid should be in the front, and then have the other part of the sentence later so the comparison can be more appropiately? Do I explain myself clearly?
Check out answer chouce B, that for the E who sought FA, it was far more eff to SPV than to go. Here in bold is the parallelism we want. Note that the first part was taken out of the way.
So here B is our right answer

Hope it helps
Make some Kudos rain if you liked it

Cheers

@metallicafan Would you please elaborate what other problems might B have instead of merely stating such?
These posts don't add any value

Thanks
