Federal legislation establishing a fund for the cleanup of sites damaged by toxic chemicals permits compensating state governments for damage to their natural resources but does not allow claims for injury to people.


(A) compensating state governments for damage to - idiomatic and parallelism is maintained.
(B) compensating state governments for the damaging of - "for the damaging" not parallel to"for injury to people"
(C) giving state governments compensation for damaging -not parallel to"for injury to people"
(D) giving compensation to state governments for the damage of- "the damage of" not parallen to "for injury to "
(E) the giving of compensation to state governments for damaging - "giving of compensation " unidiomatic

I would go with A.

IMO A.

Clues:
1. In the case, the damage has already been done and that's the reason federal legislation is a fund. It must be damage rather than damaging. So, A and D are left.

2. "compensating" is acting as a gerund here. So, it is better option than "...compensation...".

3. || is followed b/w "for damage to their" and "for injury to people".

I hope this helps.

I think this tests prepositional //ism. ‘For injury to’ people in the non-underlined part should be matched by a corresponding ‘for damage to’ in the underlined portion. Note that only A keeps such a prepositional //ism perfectly; hence that is the correct choice. Because all other choices foul this basic tenet, I would confidently dump them and go to the next.

this is also correct
a similar construction for the question would be "permits state governments to get compensation for damage to their natural resources"
but this is not part of any of the choices,so have to go with A :)
