Why not E?

Although both D and E look right, isin't E more logical. The sentence is trying to say that although all states face problem X, the definition and solution to X is different in each state.

Yups D it is...
All other sentences have subject verb error.. In E , in the first part it is mentioned about all states, and in the second part "each state"..I think that's a parallelism error

While all states face similar industrial waste problems, the predominating industries and regulatory environment of the states obviously determines the types and amounts of waste produced, as well as the cost of disposal.

predominating industries AND regulatory environment.... determine
Therefore, ACD are wrong.

B is wrong in that their refers back to each state.each state is singular and their is plural.

Therefore, E is correct.

"the predominant industries and regulatory environment of each state" is a plural subject require 'determine'
A,C,D - SV problem
B - their doesn't match with each

E - stands out.

While all states face similar industrial waste problems, the predominating industries and the regulatory environment of the states obviously determines the types and amounts of waste produced, as well as the cost of disposal.

A. all states face similar industrial waste problems, the predominating industries and the regulatory environment of the states obviously determines - the verb "determines" is singular while the subject is plural - "the predominating industries and the regulatory environment ". Hence S+V don't agree in number.
B. each state faces a similar industrial waste problem, their predominant industries and regulatory environment obviously determine - "their" is plural but the subject is "each state" which is singular. Again S+V disagreement in number
C. all states face a similar industrial waste problem; their predominating industries and regulatory environment obviously determines - unnecessary semicolon.
D. each state faces similar industrial waste problem, the predominant industries and the regulatory environment of each state obviously determines - same explanation as A
E. all states face similar industrial waste problems, the predominant industries and the regulatory environment of each state obviously determine - Everything is correct. "Determine" is plural and agrees with plural subject "the predominant industries and the regulatory environment "

I think the answer should be E. What is the OA please?

I agree with the above explanation from sdrandom1. IMO E.

In the original sentence, "determines" (a singular form) has been incorrectly used with "the predominating industries and the regulatory environment" (a plural form)

One can immediately mark option A, C and D for repeating this error.

B is out for using "their" (plural form) with singular subject "each state"

E. subject-verb agreement rule violation is the easiest type of error to detect IMO
