I think A is the answer.

E can not be, because we need an active verb in the subordinating clause. C and D can be left out to avoid redundancy. "It" clearly refers to ethnicity. Between A and B, A is clearly better.

I think it is A.

I was undecided between A and D, but would prefer A because it avoids redundancy. it refers clearly to ethnicity.

It's just a prediction, and so "would" is ok.

(A) it is.
