Ski and snowboarding industries which are characterized by the number of centers and people they employ. So, this industry lost a specific amount of money between 200o and 2010 because of a warming trend that makes them open late or close early

OPTION A- INCORRECT.
The prepositional phrase modifier 'with' is not in correlation with the relative clause modifier. Both should either be a prepositional phrase modifier or a relative clause modifier.

OPTION B- INCORRECT.
There is a modifier ' error. The modifier 'between does not modify the verb 'lost''. It gives the sentence another meaning.

OPTION C- INCORRECT
There's a subject verb error. The main clause doesn't contain any ver. Even the verb 'Lost' in the main sentence has been changed to a non verb form 'losing'

OPTION C- INCORRECT
There's also a subject verb error. The modifier used in this sentence instead of modifying the verb 'lost', it modifies the industry. There by applying that the industry that the author is talking about wasv established in between 2000 & 2010

OPTION E- CORRECT
There's a correct modifier for the verb 'lost' and the subject and verb agrees with the intended meaning of the sentence.
