I believe the best answer is (A).

1. What is damaged is the pilots' hearing ability, not "a common disability", and so (D) and (E) are out.

2. "consequence from" not idiomatic. The correct usage is "consequence of", and so (B) is out. (I guess)

3. The author is not talking about a specific case, but a tendency in general, and so "resulted from" is not good. "...a consequence which results from..." is better. Thus, (C) is out.
