Govt agencies have stepped up their drive against the usage of plastic bags.
Pronoun "it" can refer to either plastic bag or ban, but meaning wise it is wrong. They are against the usage.

E; government agencies are against the use of plastic bags, E clearly states that. it is ambiguous in other choices.

(A) The subject of the sentence is the ban so the it should ideally refer to the ban which doesn’t make sense because the government agencies have obviously not stepped up their drive against the ban.
(B) The use of the simple past tense stepped is incorrect because the action is taking place in the present. Also, the use of it is ambiguous.
(C) Incorrectly suggests that the government agencies have stepped up their drive against the ban; the agencies have stepped up their drive against plastic bags and not against the ban.
(D) The use of it is ambiguous.
