The announced relocation of the hospital has been welcome news for the city, where economic growth has been stagnant for the past several years.


city, where economic growth has been stagnant correct
city whose economic growth has been stagnant
city where economic growth has been stagnated
city, whose economic growth as been stagnated
city, the site of stagnated economic growth.

I would chose for A for the following reasons:
Since it is already announced so we know the new place. Defining the new place is optional so it has to be within commas.
So B & C are out. C & D are wordy and awkward.
So we are left with A.

is the answer A ? City 'whose' growth has been stagnant does not make sense . so B is out

Well, CITY and WHOSE is not a problem really !!
The main problem is with a missing comma before WHOSE in B.

Thus, WHOSE can point to either the hospital or the city. (Ambiguous)
A is correct in this case and is the OA as well.

wasn't sure about the stagnant part, maybe parallelism? has been news...has been stagnant?

A for me... B would have been correct if there were a comma after city... rest of the options falter when it comes to stagnated.. E is way out of the league...

IMO A
