Guess is [C], OA?

"which" refers to "Senate"

in 1994 is a prepositional phrase able to be overlooked

eliminate
a. "subsidies in 1994 which robbed"
b. "the senate"
d. should be "Chinese competition." Commas awkward.
e."the senate". awkwardness.

A, C, D have modifier issues.

Between B and E, I think it is B - 'to protect' is more direct and clear than 'for protecting'

I agree, B is the best option. "which" needs to have an antecedent (and should refer to subsidy) and "to protect" is the right idiom.

B as well. ACD used passive tense, which should be eliminated right away. That narrows choice to B & E, and "for protecting" is not idiomatic.

Going for B. Modifier is placed correctly.
