I'll go with E. (A), (B) and (C) all suggests the shades are roofs. (D) uses 'to be' which is not appropriate.

E it is.

"A"...."each a roof" correctly modifies the "shades"....each a roof is defining what shades are.

From the original sentence, we are told the Mojave lived in open-sidedm flat topped dwellings known as shades. I do not think the rood modifies shades because you can't live in roofs.

Although "shades" are considered dwellings, it is fine to describe them as roof because we are especially pointing out to a particular trait of those shades. In other words, it would sound like this:

[...]dwellings known as shades, each [consisting of] a roof of poles...

It is how we can understand the appositive to be a descriptor of and how it fits in the context. It is the most concise choice.

That's very interesting. Thanks Paul for clarifying.

@UVS Here is a classic example of where "...being~" at the end of an answer choice is an instant CROSS.
