To deal with this explosion of data, one can use the computer and communications technology to help us sort, store, transport, and most important, understand the information.

A. to help us sort, store, transport, and most important, understand the information.
B. to help us sort, store, transport, and most important, to understand the information
C. to help us to sort, store, transport, and most important, understand the information.
D. to help one to sort, store, transport, and most important, understand the information.
E. to help one sort, store, transport, and most important, understand the information.

The expression 'one can use'…requires ' help one', not 'us'. Therefore, A, B, and C are out. Between D and E, 'help' is a kind of verb that does not require the infinitive marker 'to'. E is more idiomatic than D.
E is the answer

To deal with this explosion of data, one can use the computer and communications technology to help us sort, store, transport, and most important, understand the information.

Rewriting the sentence to understand the meaning:

One can use the computer and communications technology to help us sort, store, transport, and most important, understand the information, so that he/she is able to deal with the explosion of data.

'Us' is not parallel to 'One' hence A,B and C can be eliminated. 'D' uses infinitive twice which makes it redundant. Eliminate.

A. to help us sort, store, transport, and most important, understand the information.
B. to help us sort, store, transport, and most important, to understand the information
C. to help us to sort, store, transport, and most important, understand the information.
D. to help one to sort, store, transport, and most important, understand the information.
E. to help one sort, store, transport, and most important, understand the information.

IMO Answer E.
