"economic" is correct.

So cross out A, B, C.

I would go with E.

In D, "being" appears to have no definite modifier...(this might not be the correct reason but...:?)

832. The supply of oil being finite has become an economical and political consideration of the first magnitude for all modern industrial nations.
(A) The supply of oil being finite has become an economical
(B) The finite supply of oil has become an economical
(C) That the supply of oil is finite has become an economical
(D) The supply of oil being finite has become an economic
(E) That the supply of oil is finite has become an economic--Correct

Explain:
1.in case of "X and Y", X and Y must be parallel. Consequently, "economic and political" wins "economical and political", and hence A, B, and C are out;
2."being" is usually wrong, so D is out.
