E.

The idiom is ranging from X to Y.
X and Y should be parallel. In E noun clauses are in parallel.

Sky Airlines recently announced aggressive cost-cutting measures ranging from new airport check-in procedures that encourage passengers to use self-service kiosks and reductions in the size of its fleet.

A. ranging from new airport check-in procedures that encourage passengers to use self-service kiosks and reductions
Correct Idiom is Ranging from X to Y. X & Y should be both grammatically and logically parallel. Hence Incorrect.

B. ranging from new airport check-in procedures that encourage passengers to use self-service kiosks and to reductions
Correct Idiom is Ranging from X to Y. X & Y should be both grammatically and logically parallel. Hence Incorrect.

C. such as improvement of airport check-in procedures, encouragement of passengers to use self-service kiosks and reducing
This option changes the original intent. Encouragement is not a different activity. Moreover, action noun REDUCTION is required at the end. Hence Incorrect.

D. ranging from new airport check-in procedures that encourage passengers to use self-service kiosks to reducing
Correct Idiom is Ranging from X to Y. X & Y should be both grammatically and logically parallel. In this option X & Y are not parallel. Hence Incorrect.

E. ranging from new airport check-in procedures that encourage passengers to use self-service kiosks to reductions
CORRECT

E is the correct answer

it took me only 51 sec
Shortcut: idiom is "ranging from X to Y" reading vertically at the end of the sentences only option D&E got "to"
Eliminate A,B&C
"reducing" in D is not parallel with "ranging from new airport..." the word after to should be noun... D is eliminated

Make sure to re-read the whole sentence with option E to make sure it fits
