B, C and E are out; A and D are left. I'd go for A because D doesn't seem to preserve the meaning of the original sentence.

What is the OA?

(A) In assessing the problems faced by rural migrant workers, the question of whether they are better off materially than the urban working poor is irrelevant.
(B) The question of whether the rural migrant worker is better off materially than the urban working poor is irrelevant in assessing the problems that they face.
(C) A question that is irrelevant in assessing the problems that rural migrant workers face is whether they are better off materially than the urban working poor.
(D) In an assessment of the problems faced by rural migrant workers, the question of whether they are better off materially than the urban working poor is irrelevant.
(E) The question of whether the rural migrant worker is better off materially than the urban working poor is irrelevant in an assessment of the problems that they face.

I will go with A here. I can see nothing wrong in the original sentence.
B, C, E wrongly shift focus on question rather than assessment. Between A and D, I will go for A.

Exactly my query is how do we differentiate between assessment and assessing(as a gerund).Which one is a correct usage? :shock:
