what is wrong with B?

(B) which had industrial growth in the nineteenth century more rapid than that of other American cities.

it has problem of comparision. In B, it should be "which had industrial growth in the nineteenth century more rapid than that of any other American cities'.

E fixes this problem. therefore, E is best.
