1. (B), (C), and (E) are out because it has to be "from X to Y".
2. (D) sounds weird in that it says "The industry appears that it did something".

I vote for (A).

After suffering \$2 billion in losses and 25,000 layoffs, the nationâ€™s semiconductor industry, which makes chips that run everything from computers and spy satellites to dishwashers, appears to have made a long-awaited recovery.

Omit the clause in red and the sentence is grammatically fine.

(A)

Another A.

The trigger for me was the 'from'. I thought of the idiom 'from x to y'

from.... to: correct idiom
B, C, E out
Consider between A and D. I stick to A. D seems awkward

From A to B is the correct idiom

so B, C, and E are gone............ you're down to 50 50 between A and D

the only differece between the two is at the end, appears to have sounds better than appears that it has, so go with A

I would go with 'A'. From 'A' to 'B' is the correct idiom and there is no need for a pronoun 'it' to refer to the antecedent 'Nation's semiconductor industry.

And the vote goes to A..
I got confused with D for some time, thinking that "nations semicondustor industry" is singular and it warrants "has", but then the sentence sounds awkward...Guys , the rule is "have" to be used with "plural subjects"..Isnt it??? Then is "semiconductor industry" singular?

If we remove the part between commas like GMATT73 suggested, we are left with A and D. Again, the correct idiom "from A to B" leaves us with A.
