A, C, E are out for "being"

"Unlike other" in B is distorting the meaning.

Unlike other transportation industries….. -->should set up comparison with some other industry. So A and B are wrong.

(C) ,no such one... and (E) ,there is none... --> no clear referent

2nd clause in (D) starts with mention of standard . So only (D) is correct and is OA.

I must be boosting your confidence guys :)
