First look for split .especially and specially . A pollutant can't be special .so eliminate d and e .between a,b and c . To deal is better than of dealing and in dealing as we need to show intention
the first apparent split is between especially and specially.. especially is meant to emphasize a point or some idea or topic..(if you notice this has been extensively used in GMAT like texts such as RCs, SCs and CRs) ..specially is used to denote the special or exclusive bit of something....(which is not required here..) so we need especially...

Next.... in options B...of diminishing is wrong.. and C capability in dealing is unidiomatic..
