I believe it is A.
"damage to" is the correct idiom.

I will go for A.

(A) compensating state governments for damage to
Not a very good question if you ask me. " Federal legislation establishing" sounds weird. But this is the best answer amongst the choices.

(B) compensating state governments for the damaging of
- "for the damaging" sounds like govts are compensated because govts damage the natural resouces.

(C) giving state governments compensation for damaging
- compensating is better/shorter than giving compensation
- "for damaging" sounds like govts are compensated because govts damage the natural resouces.


(D) giving compensation to state governments for the damage of
- compensating is better/shorter than giving compensation
- "damage of" wrong idiom


(E) the giving of compensation to state governments for damaging - compensating is better/shorter than the giving of compensation
- "for damaging" sounds like govts are compensated because govts damage the natural resouces.


Finally don't worry my dear brainkid... I'm sure you will score 7XX.
