not quite sure what "which were" from answer B is refering to. I feel like it could as well be refering to the two events mentioned in the beginning of the sentence, therefore the clarity is the issue here. Could someone else please clarify ?

A relative clause modifies the noun before it.
Coming to your question on B.
For the sentence in Ans B :
"when she participated in the hearings on the impeachment of President Richard Nixon, which were"

Here closest noun to "which" is "hearings" and hence 'hearings' is modified by which.

You can actually read the sentence simply as -"she participated in the hearings, which were televised......."
because "on the impeachment" and "of President Richard Nixon" are prepositional phrases modifying hearings only and none of these can be taken as noun being modified by which.

Hope it helps.
