A. are worrying that the competing agendas of economic policy makers, who want uniform international standards, and federal regulators, who are trying to balance consumer protection and commercial rights, would neglect the interests of people---Conditional with present tense wrong
B. worry that the competing agendas of economic policy makers, wanting uniform international standards, and federal regulators, trying to balance consumer protection and commercial rights, neglects the interests of people---wrong modifier
C. worried that the competing agendas of economic policy makers, who wanted uniform international standards, and federal regulators, who were trying to balance consumer protection and commercial rights, was neglecting the interests of people---it should be were
D. worry that the competing agendas of economic policy makers, that want uniform international standards, and federal regulators, that are trying to balance consumer protection and commercial rights, would neglect the interests of people---that cannot modify people
E. worry that the competing agendas of economic policy makers, who want uniform international standards, and federal regulators, who are trying to balance consumer protection and commercial rights, will neglect the interests of people---correct

There are two problems in this question:
1) are worrying that
2) would neglect

would is used in following two cases:
1) When its a hypothetical situation
2) When the future is in past

For example:
She thought that she would be able to finish her work.
In this sentence the prediction is happening in past.

Since in this sentence the prediction is in present hence "will" should be used instead of "would".

Also here the intent is not of continuous process hence we dont present continuous,
therefore the verb should be "worry" instead of "are worrying".

Hope this helps.

These both problems are taken into consideration in E.

A. are worrying that the competing agendas of economic policy makers, who want uniform international standards, and federal regulators, who are trying to balance consumer protection and commercial rights, would neglect the interests of people - as if its happening right now...in this moment..use of ing is incorrect
B. worry that the competing agendas of economic policy makers, wanting uniform international standards, and federal regulators, trying to balance consumer protection and commercial rights, neglects the interests of people - the verb in the last clause has to be plural (agendas of x and y neglect)
C. worried that the competing agendas of economic policy makers, who wanted uniform international standards, and federal regulators, who were trying to balance consumer protection and commercial rights, was neglecting the interests of people - the verb should be "were" also the past tense is not really required here when we have correct options with present tense
D. worry that the competing agendas of economic policy makers, that want uniform international standards, and federal regulators, that are trying to balance consumer protection and commercial rights, would neglect the interests of people - that can not modify a human - we should better use a "who"
E. worry that the competing agendas of economic policy makers, who want uniform international standards, and federal regulators, who are trying to balance consumer protection and commercial rights, will neglect the interests of people -Correct

E is correct.

A. Worrying is wrong, worry is like appear, cant say appearing. Would is wrong, bcoz changes tense of the sentence back to the past. It is at least in present or in implyed future (in expectation)
B. Agendas needs a plural verb, neglects is singular
C. Changes whole meaning of original sentence, bring it back to the past. Was must be were. Prefer implyed future tense
D. That must be who, would must be will or at least present tense
