I think here "for" is not correct to use. For can either act as a conjunction or preposition. Here we have a clause "For cows to be angered by the color red" as the subject for verb "is" in "is a popular myth". So "for" in the clause cannot act as a conjunction. It does not fit as a preposition as well as it does not make sense as in the sentence "Color red angers for cows" which is the active voice form of the clause.

So A and D are out.

For cows to be angered by the color red is a popular myth
For is wrong
The notion that cows are angered by the color red is one that is popular but mythical
The sentence is wordy and has a change of meaning as we are not really contrasting myth and popularity.
The notion that cows are angered by the color red, which is popular, is a myth
Which is wrongly modifying red here
For cows, the notion of being angered by the color red is a popular one, but it is a myth nonetheless
Change of meaning emphasis is not on contrasting popular and myth. Also for cows is illlogical.
The popular notion that cows are angered by the color red is a myth
CORRECT
