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

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.

Great point GMATBLACKBELT!

But it is not just parallelism. While the OG explanation sticks to the S/V agreement issue. You have given a new dimension to the answer and now it would be safe to say that E is correct because of both SV and ||ism.

I have chosen E for the answer:

The main point of this sentence is to compare the industrial problems that "ALL STATES" have with the industries and regulatory environment of "EACH STATE."

A. There is SV agreement error here. The subject of the sentence is the compound subject "The predominating industries and the regulatory environment." Therefore, the plural verb "determine" must be used for agreement. Also, the answer has omitted "each state." This leads to some confusion because we are trying to compare what occurs in "all states" to what occurs in "each state."

B. The pronoun "their" does not have an antecedent because "each state" is singular.

C. There is subject verb agreement error here - the plural subject and singular "determines" do not agree. Also, the use of the semicolon creates a fragment because "while" introduces a subordinate clause, which must be connected to an independent clause.

D. Again, we have subject verb agreement error here.

E. This sentence accurately describes the contrast between "all states" and "each state." Also, the plural subject and plural verb are in agreement.

(A) all states face similar industrial waste problems, the predominating industries and regulatory environment of the states obviously determines and demands plural form - determine.
(B) each state faces a similar industrial waste problem, their predominant industries and regulatory environment obviously determine each state demands its and not their.
(C) all states face a similar industrial waste problem, their predominating industries and regulatory environment obviously determines and demands plural form - determine.
(D) each state faces similar industrial waste problems, the predominant industries and regulatory environment of each state obviously determines and demands plural form - determine.
