A. After ";" must go clause. We see correct clause construction (clause has subject, object & verb). Problem with pronouns (they, them - whom do they search for, who searches?)
B. After ";" must go clause. We see phrase.
C. 'Overturning rocks' modifies bears. Thus, it must be connected with bears with 'which' or 'who'
D. Problem with pronouns (they, them - whom do they search for, who searches?)
E. Right connection. (which). All errors are corrected, and no errors are added :) - right one

Relative pronouns who, which can refer to people/animals.
Relative pronouns that, which can refer to things.

2nitindas: please do not post OA in the first message. It would be better for others to investigate the question and work out their own answer. Consider posting OA at the end of discussion.

Sorry, below is right version:
Relative pronouns who, that can refer to people/animals.
Relative pronouns which, that can refer to things.

English uses it to refer to animals. So 'which' correctly refers to 'bears'.
