A. is reflective, so that little polar ice melts during the summer; otherwise,
B. is so reflective that little of the polar ice melts during the summer; were it to do so,
C. so reflective that little polar ice melts during the summer, or else
D. reflective, so that little of the polar ice melts during the summer, or

A, D and E are not parallel with "co cold"

I will go with (C)

Yet temperatures are so cold and ice cap is

You need verb "is" after ice cap.. otherwise it doesn't make sense.

Temperatures are so cold and ice cap reflective ----> akward construction..
C,D,E are out.

must be between A and B

little polar ice melts vs little of the polar ice melts

"little polar ice" melts --> sounds good

go for A..
