A it is...

We need "contend that"

E is wrong, linguists can not contend the ability...
D is weird to be tracable...
C is creating a restrictive clause with WHICH. In GMAT restrictive clause will always start with THATand non-restrictive clause wil always start with WHICH.
B - of which all is weird. You need all of which... X of many...
and moreober, the subject of the sentence is "languages" not "people" because that is what linguists are contending about...

No in GMAT, which needs a noun. Usually it starts a non-restrictive clause and almost always follows a comma.
