My answer is A. it clearly refers to ethnicity. C and D can thus be eliminated as the use of "it" is better than "ethnicity". I am unable to explain why B and E are wrong, but I just feel that A is more appropriate of the three.

A looks good,

D looks tempting but has a problem of split infinitive.

Rest all have problems of their own.

I fell for D.
Wasn't sure about the use of it prior to the actual reference in A.

OA is A.
