Lieing is an incorrect word - This eliminates D
Lying is the present participle of 'lie', meaning resting on a surface - E is the correct option.

Let us clear the matter forever.

1. Lie.....Lay.....Lain.....(means be in or assume a horizontal position)

2. Lie.....Lied....Lied.....(means an intentionally false statement)

3. Lay.....Laid.....Laid.....(means put something down gently or carefully)

Obviously, we meant the first one.

A. laying here for weeks.

Participle form of "Lay" is not intended here.

B. laying here weeks.

"Weeks" are not laying here. Also, "Laying" is not correct.

C. laying down here for weeks.

"Laying" and "down" are showing redundancy. We can't "Lay up". Also, "Laying" is not correct.

D. lieing here for weeks.

Books can't lie as humans can do.

E . lying here for weeks.

Correct.
