Hi...

The main point here is to see how the underlined portion should be connected to the initial part.
1) which modifies preceding NOUN .... Wrong
2) verb-ed and verb-ing modifiers also MODIFY earlier noun or the initial portion ..... wrong
3) what is the INTENDED use - to give further details, examples AND for this nuon Modifier is correct so D or E
E gives correct meaning through use of "due to"..

E

Here is my take:
A) Incorrect usage of because of - because of modifies action verbs.
B) entailed is an ed-modifier- ed modifiers show that the action was done on the subject. It is trying to refer to advantages, and is completely illogical.
C) Wrong usage of because of- needs to modify action verb and not nouns
D) accessing vs accessibility- accessibility is a noun, so much better as before and, we have affordable price. Also from does not clearly show the meaning. Also, incorrect usage of "these".
E) CORRECT USAGE OF DUE TO, which can modify nouns. Hence correct

In option C, the use of 'and also' is redundant.
The right answer, therefore, should be E.

I eliminated A because I believe it is unidiomatic. I think it should be accessing OF, not accessing to. Further, can't 'advantages of the device' serve as a modifier, so 'which' can modify advantages in this case?
A)which entail its affordable price and its easy accessing to difficult places because of
