@LM you are just increasing your number of posts. You are not bringing in value by contributing on the reasoning.

IMHO B

C and D are out because of usage of "due to".
E changes the meaning.
In A: It sounds like "chemical composition is in wide use"

B

I'd go with C here. With B, the sentence would read: The pesticide Azocide has proven ineffective because of the chemical compositions of the pesticides already in wide use neutralizing its desired effect.

This sentence doesn't make sense. "The pesticides already in wide use ARE nuetralizing its desired effect." Without 'are' or 'have been', the sentence is a fragment. With a cause and effect sentence like this, I would use 'due to' as well.

I will go wid "B" surely...

"Due to" equivalent of "Caused by" doesn't makes sense in C & D

"Are neutralizing" or "have been neutralizing" would have been correct if the sentence would have read as "The pesticide Azocide, introduced to central valley farms three summers ago, has proven ineffective because other pesticides....."

The presence of "because of" makes the difference in "B" and the rest part is in perfect sync....

Below sentence would make sense:
She is upset because teachers are complaining against her.
She is upset because of teacher complaining against her.

That sentence doesn't make sense at all.

C makes sense after knowing its the answer - but overall all options are a bit off!
