IMO E
Firstly "western states" is plural ... so " which is already" is wrong... so (A) and (B)-Eliminated.
also "increasingly great " in(A ) and (C) is redundant..
.in (c) and (d) -" an already overburdened ecosystem" points to a singular noun but " western ghats is plural"..
" the greater the pressure on water resources becomes"-awkward construction... so Just (E) is left

Here you need to focus on to things:

"The more X, the greater Y" and "states which ARE"

Knowing that:

• The more people that move to western states, which is an already overburdened ecosystem, the more pressure
on water resources becomes increasingly great - Which is , is not correct
• The more that people move to western states, which is an already overburdened ecosystem, the greater the
pressure is on water resources Which is , is not correct
• With more people moving to western states, an already overburdened ecosystem, the more pressure on water
resources becomes increasingly great With , is not correct
• The more that people move to western states, an already overburdened ecosystem, the greater the pressure on
water resources becomes that people , is not correct
• The more people move to western states, which are already an overburdened ecosystem, the greater the pressure
on water resources becomes Correct

I think something is wrong with option E.

The more people move to western states, which are already an overburdened ecosystem, the greater the pressure
on water resources becomes

western states, which are already an overburdened ecosystem

Don't you think plural states should not be referred as (singular) an overburdened ecosystem.

Already an overburdened ecosystem, western states ( modifier demands singular object I think with plural states such construction is not fine.)

a heavy transport vehicle, buses give comfortable ride. ( i think this one is not correct)

I have modified the modifier part as following: I hope it's a better construction.

The more people move to western states, whose ecosystem is already overburdened, the greater the pressure
on water resources becomes

Option E uses correct expression:more the X,more/greater the Y.
