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)
cheers

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

Hence E is the answer.

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
Y = administration's

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
