though I answered this question correctly, I want to see whether my reasoning was correct. Please provide explanation.

I will go with C.

D, E --> clearly out.. such animosity --> refers to which "animosity " they didn't talk about animosity.. before..

A and B.. looks like sentence fragmenation.

C is clear and good.

The anmosity < between X and Y> has never been more produced..

Yes, C is very clear.

thanks suresh, I have got your explanation. So C requires a verb and hence "has" fills that gap.

IMO C

The animosity between those who regulate and those who are regulated, never more pronounced than in recent debates over environmentalism and pollution control.
(A) The animosity between those who regulate and those who are regulated, never --> no verb
(B) The animosity between those who regulate and those who are regulated, never being -->being is incorrect
(C) The animosity between those who regulate and those who are regulated has never been -->best. correct meaning, correct use of present perfect tense
(D) Between those who regulate and those who are regulated, such animosity was never -->such animosity doesn't refer to anything
(E) Between those who regulate and between those regulated, such animosity has never been -->same error as D

I'll go with C. A & B makes the same original mistake by not using any "connecting words" (sorry for my lack of correct grammatical names), E is too wordy, I think D changes the meaning a little...

Clear C...D and E have modifier error....B is using being.....A is missing the verb...

A has no verb
B uses being as verb, almost always wrong
D & E awkward.

Since it says "more pronounced than in RECENT debates " we should use present perfect tense .The word Recent calls for usage of present perfect tense !

Actually use of present perfect is because of the word never. In this sentence, recent is in the second part of the comparison and so, doesn't directly effect the tense in the first half.

(A) The animosity between those who regulate and those who are regulated, never - Wrong: 1) No verb
(B) The animosity between those who regulate and those who are regulated, never being - Wrong: 1) No verb 2) Unnecessary use of being
(C) The animosity between those who regulate and those who are regulated has never been - Correct
(D) Between those who regulate and those who are regulated, such animosity was never - Wrong: 1) No antecedent for "such" 2) Wrong verb: Need present perfect "has" with "never"
(E) Between those who regulate and between those regulated, such animosity has never been - Wrong: 1) Wrong Idiom: Extra "between" in "Between X and between Y" 2) No antecedent for "such"
