This sentence has modifier and agreement issue.

The sentence starts with description of “Barbara Jordan” role. So we require “Barbara Jordan” - Eliminate A, C and D

Between B and E: “Which” logically modifies “hearings” so require plural verb – So B wins

Also In E: "then also later" is verbose

E has this S-V agreement issue with "was" at the end

Sentence starts with "Although she ....." the first thing that you need after comman should be the subject (i.e. who is she). So it shoul dbe Although she ......, Barbara Jordan ....

Also C has this unnecessary pronoun "it". and its refrence is confusing to track.

Which refers to the word right before comma and in both B & E, it seems to refer to Richard Nixon.

What is the source of this Q?

It does not matter whether hearings can be televised or not. Which always refers to the thing right before the comma.

Not always. I read somewhere probably in this forum that 1 or 2 OG questions has/have the similar application of which.

agree that in most of the cases, which always refers to the immidiately preceding nown.
