A - 'that' is missing ; 'the result is' not parallel
B - 'to distinguish' .... and 'to make'- hold on
C - 'and the result of this, they are unable' is not parallel to 'to distinguish'
D - results in 'not making' - wordy, awkward
E - 'for distinguishing' is wrong idiom ; not parallel
Comparing D and B, B is better option.

Here, I think - distinguish x from y - should be there in at least one answer choice, All of them have 'And'
This confuses me, can anyone help....

D. that it hampers the ability of some children to distinguish discrete sounds and
words, and results in not making
E. as to hamper the ability of some children for distinguishing discrete sounds and
words, resulting in being unable to make

A "That" is required to introduce a relative clause.
B Correct.
C "This" is ambiguous.
D "Results in not making" is not parallel with "distinguish."
E "Ability... for" is not idiomatic.
