I choose A (between A an D).

B - No ||ism. Which slows...does snot match with and heating
C - IT is not clear. IT can refer to air or paper
D - For which.. is not the correct construction
E - Using... is not correct.

I prefer D to A, because we use sth. for...

Although I am not comfortable with the way A sounds, I arrived at that by POE.

Ideally I would want a that after cigarette like in C. But C is wrong because it uses when it enters. B an E have no parallelism. D is wrong because cigrattes for which does not sound right.
