There is no consensus on what role, if any, is played by acid rain in slowing the growth or damaging forests in the eastern United States.
(A) slowing the growth or damaging
(B) the damage or the slowing of the growth of
(C) the damage to or the slowness of the growth of
(D) damaged or slowed growth of
(E) damaging or slowing the growth of
The way I approached this sentence is to split the two parts of the sentence that are joined by the conjuction "or". So I think of it as "...acid rain in slowing the growth forests" and "...acid rain in damaging forests", as you see in the first phrase, we need an "of" as in "...acid rain in slowing the growth of forests". Thus I chose E.
