Parallelizm : E is right (i think)
In contrast to requires Parallelizm
In contrast to X(proposal), Y (adminstration's proposal) would ...

why E not D, Although D is gramatically not flawed it is wordy. And .."...would cut ..." requires "would" after proposal (again they must be parallel Also it seems to me that "which" in D doesn't have a clear referent (it may be restrictions, propozal)

I believe that D is incorrect and that A is the correct answer.

The reason for D being incorrect seems to be the use of 'include' and not 'includes' while the sentence makes use of 'a proposal'.
Shouldn't it be 'a proposal, which includes'?

I think everyone will agree with eliminating B, C and E, which will leave us with A which does seem to be a good substitue.

To me E looks the answer.

A --->incorrect comparison of environmental proposals with administration
B --->incorrect comparison of environmental proposals with administration
C---->incorrect comparison of environmental proposals with administration
D---->"which includes " means that pollutants are examples of restriction (restrictions in on pollutants )

A. administration proposed calling for mandatory restriction of - Wrong Idiom
B. administration proposed a call for mandatory restrictions, including those for
C. administration, proposing mandatory restrictions on
D. administration’s proposal was a call for mandatory restrictions, which include
E. administration’s proposal would call for mandatory restrictions on

A - Wrong Idiom

B & D - Eliminate - Verb Tense.

Left with C & E
Both use the correct idiom "restriction on X"
B - Eliminate - Wrong Verb Tense.

E - Uses the correct Verb Tense

Does 'in contrast to' act like 'like' or 'unlike' which are used in comparisons and so do we need parallelism ?

A, B, C are out because they compare the proposal with the administration, then D is out because which does not have a clear antecedent and also verb tense not parallel so choice E is the answer

In contrast X , Y where X and Y should be parallel .

X = environmentalists

Hence choices between D , E .
However D seems to have relative pronoun 'which' seems to refer to administration's incorrect meaning of the sentence .
Thus leaves us with E

'environmentalists' proposals' must be compared with 'administration’s proposal'- A, B and C are out.

'Which' in choice 'D' refers to restriction. The meaning implies 'restriction includes three pollutants', and this is not the intended meaning. Actual meaning of the sentence is 'restriction on three pollutants'.

in D , restriction can not include pollutant. using our common sense of this world we realize the illogic meaning likd this one on sc.
