between (A) and (E), will go for (E) sounds better.

(D) is wrong because of usage of "another" while we are talking about entities already present in the discussion.
And you need "that" to connect the pollutant.. to rest of the sentence.

MY FA was A.

I think the "they both export" is not correct. not sure though.

I think its more to do with the logic in the sentence. The pollutant exchange is automatic - flows from US to Canada because of the pollution fom US and pollutants from Canada reach the US. Meaning this is happening without control and this means that no one is physically exporting to the other and viceversa. Now the question stem actually seem to bring up this natural process of pollution exchange, which is best outlined on A.

You can see that B, C , D and E seem to emphasise on the countries as though this is a trade issue - which it is not.

What do u guys think..if its bull, let me know

In E "they both" is redundant. The sentence mentions onlt two entities, so either "they" or "both" should be dropped.

Honestly, this is really a little bit of bull
just kidding..

I chose A too.

In B, one is redundant.
In C, next is wrong usage
In E, both is redundant
Between, D and A, I chose A - since D uses continuous tense, A keeps it simple present.

The best answer would be: that they export to each other.

Failing that and from the given choices, A may be close but it still sounds awful.
