Why is E better than D? In both the case Modifier ( D - using relative clause , E - Noun modifier), is separated by another vital Noun Modifier. So what is the difference?

What is the difference between option E and D? Why E is preferred?

Option E also uses a modifier that can define both the INDUSTRIES and RESTRICTION. And same is true for option D?

Imo E
I think E is more succinct direct

"that" in Option D is incorrectly modifying the fish industries.

As per the meaning of the sentence, the new law will help protect population from the restrictions imposed earlier.

(A) stipulations of restriction on the tourist and fishing industries by previously proposed laws --> Change in meaning. It should be restrictions stipulated by some laws.

(B) stipulations by previously proposed laws of restrictions on the tourist and fishing industries --> Change in meaning. It should be restrictions stipulated by some laws.

(C) stipulations for restrictions on the fishing industries and the tourist industry of previously proposed laws --> Change in meaning. It should be restrictions stipulated by some laws.

(D) restrictions on the tourist and fishing industries that were stipulated by laws proposed previously --> It means industries were stipulated by laws. Illogical.

(E) restrictions on the tourist and fishing industries stipulated by previously proposed laws

Restrictions are stipulating , not the industries . So E is correct.

for E option, stipulated is an -ed modifier that modifies the immediately preceding noun. -ed modifiers always modify in this way don't they ? By this reasoning even option E should be wrong.
Kindly help what am I missing here or what concept of mine is wrong here.

thanks

Option D and Option E are close. The only difference in them is the 'that were' part.
In option D, 'that' can incorrectly refer to fishing industries instead of restrictions. Hence it can create ambiguity.
Option E is a much better option with no ambiguity!
