Increased pollution in Huang chin River, could alter the nature of Huan chin Bay, which would rob the lobsters there of their flavor, and to make them decrease in size, less distinctive, and less in demand.

A. which would rob the lobsters there of their flavor, and to make them decrease in size doesn't have a logical antecedent

B. and it would rob the lobsters there of their flavor, make them smaller doesn't have a logical antecedent

C. and rob the lobsters there of their flavor, making them decrease in size 'rob' is not an action in parallel with 'alter'. 'Rob' is the description of how increased pollution could alter the nature of Bay.

D and E are correctly using 'rob' as descriptive modifier. 'making them smaller' is rhetorically better than 'decrease in size'.
D. robbing the lobsters there of their flavor and making them smaller Best choice

E. robbing the lobsters there of their flavor, and making them decrease in size
