E for me! Between...... and atmospheric water vapour. Besides, it is the most concise of all the other answers.

E.

Between industrial emissions of sulfer dioxide and nitrogen oxides and ....

The first and is a definition of what industrial emissions are, not the chemical reaction constituents that result in acid rain.

due to between ....and ...... , A&B out. Which in C and D seems to modify only the right antedecent "atmospheric water vapor" , so C and D out.

The idiom between ....and should be used.
So i think between (industrial emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides ) AND atmospheric water vapor....... is the right choice

When you have "between", "and" is the better option than "with"!

Though I agree with some merit in your explaination

Please explain why A would not be correct.

One could also reason:

chemical reactions between industrial emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides with atmospheric water vapor to produce highly corrosive sulfuric and nitric acids.

Chemical reaction is NOT between emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides but actually between emissions of ... and atomsperic water. Hence A is wrong.

Exactly, it is poorly worded, I think.
May be, the question could just use one of the oxides. I think, A is also right in a way one can interpret, bu no one knows what the person who framed the question interpreted.
actually, when the given sentence is not wrong, it is preferred to go with A...
