C. on both diesel fuel and diesel engines has sparked a counterattack by the oil industry, which says --Correct

The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposal to place restrictions on both diesel fuel and diesel engines has sparked a counterattack by the oil industry, saying that the move will exacerbate the nation’s fuel supply problems.
A. on both diesel fuel and diesel engines has sparked a counterattack by the oil industry, saying
Saying is a verb+ing modifier modifying the entire clause. This distorts the original meaning of the sentence by saying that it was the EPA proposal which was
saying that "the move will.... ". Instead this sentence should use relative modifier to clarify that it actually the oil industry saying that the move will exacerbate the
nation's fuel economy problems.
B. on both diesel fuel and engines have sparked the oil industry to counterattack, and they say
Plural verb "have" does not agrees with singular subject "proposal".
C. on both diesel fuel and diesel engines has sparked a counterattack by the oil industry, which says
This is the correct answer as it removes the ambiguity regarding who was saying what. It uses correct S-V pair and correct relative pronoun modifier to refer to
oil industry.
D. both on diesel fuel and engines has sparked the oil industry to a counterattack, saying
This option destroys parallelism by not putting a "on" after and to maintain // .
E. both on diesel fuel and diesel engines have sparked the oil industry to counterattack, and it says
Same mistake as in option D in addition to S-V agreement issue.
