(A) cars' potential energy, gained through their being lifted by a chain drive
(B) cars' potential energy, a gain achieved as they are lifted by a chain drive
(C) potential energy from the cars' being lifted by a chain drive
(D) potential energy of the cars, gained as a chain drive lifts them
(E) potential energy gained by the cars, being achieved while a chain drive lifts them

D is OK, but ambiguous: cars gained, or energy gained?

D is definitely the best answer, but not a great answer. The key is to consider the entire subject "Potential energy of the cars" rather than just "potential energy."

On this one, note that (C) is impossible because you need a comma somewhere so that the clause can begin (the clause ends at "drop").
