D for me
E lacks parallellism in comparison
"is" in D properly compares the act of "being a deterrent" of "politicial opposition" to that of "financial uncertainties"

Paul, I'm so curious.

In choice D there is no verb for the is to substitute.
The only verb in the sentence is prove, which cannot be replace with is.

Could you tell my why? Thanks

Here is a more simple sentence

Mark proves to be a better player than John is

In bold are just 2 different forms of verb "to be" in order to compare how good a player Mark is VS how good a player John is

(D).

Financial uncertainties has to be logically linked with resulting from the accident. So A,B,C is out.

Between D and E, D is better as E isn't parallel.

E has one more problem "deterring to the nuclear " is not a correct usage "deterrent to the nuclear industry" is the correct one.

D it is

but I dont think its ||ism being tested here, I think its comparison

we are comparing financial uncertainties vs political opposition

than is required to draw the right comparison between the two!

why A B and C are not valid ?

I mean comparing the structures of:

-from the accident at Three Mile Island

-resulting from the accident at Three Mile Island

how did you eliminate the first 3 options jut by the beggining?

Financial uncertainties from the accident is wrong. There is no financial uncertainty in any accident.
