E is my choice.

I will not consider any choice which has Them, because it is 3rd person pronoun and can not resolve to which noun it is referring, may be investors.

Left with B,C,E

None of these seem to make sense except E

I would have picked B, if it did not have include(s), singular verb.

Are you sure okdongdong, there is no type in this question.

I am going with B, ritheshgupta has a point but I think i have seen a precedent where such constructio is allowed.

I have see these type of constructs also where which refers to a noun that has been discussed in the previous clause and is far away from the which clause.

Why I did not pick is because of includes (singular), otherwise B is best.

D should be the OA.

A is not idiomatic tyo say "including among them...."
in B, "which" modifies company and therefore is wrong.
In C, "included among these" is also not idiomatic expression.
D. looks ok for me. though i donot like "sales of......."
in E, among these is also not idiomatic.
