+1 kudo for the question !
IMO: D

In 1992, Christopher McCandless initiated his ill-fated attempt to live off the land in Alaska despite the locals’ warnings that trying to survive in the wilderness without supplies often spell an untimely, foolish death.

A. In 1992, Christopher McCandless initiated his ill-fated attempt to live off the land in Alaska despite the locals’ warnings that trying to survive in the wilderness without supplies often spell an untimely, foolish death. Need singular verb. trying to survive.. often spells.

B. Christopher McCandless initiated his ill-attempted attempt to live off the land in Alaska despite the locals’ warnings in 1992 that trying to survive in the wilderness without supplies often spells an untimely, foolish death. Misplaced modifier changes the original meaning. It says local's warned in 1992, but actually Christopher initiated attempt in 1992.

C. In 1992, despite the locals’ warnings that trying to survive in the wilderness without supplies often spells an untimely, foolish death, Christopher McCandless still initiated his ill-fated attempt to live off the land in Alaska. Sequence of construction is incorrect. despite+ still are redundant.

D. In 1992, Christopher McCandless initiated his ill-fated attempt to live off the land in Alaska despite the locals’ warnings that trying to survive in the wilderness without supplies often spells an untimely, foolish death. Correct in all aspects.

E. In 1992, Christopher McCandless initiated his ill-fated attempt, hoping that living off the land in Alaskan wilderness prove possible, despite the locals’ warnings that trying to survive without supplies often spells an untimely, foolish death. Added extra clause. Need singular verb in living off..proves

C. In 1992, despite the locals’ warnings that trying to survive in the wilderness without supplies often spells an untimely, foolish death, Christopher McCandless still initiated his ill-fated attempt to live off the land in Alaska seems warnings were given in 1992....Christopher McCandless...should be placed next to In 1992

D. In 1992, Christopher McCandless initiated his ill-fated attempt to live off the land in Alaska despite the locals’ warnings that trying to survive in the wilderness without supplies often spells an untimely, foolish death correct

E. In 1992, Christopher McCandless initiated his ill-fated attempt, hoping that living off the land in Alaskan wilderness prove possible, despite the locals’ warnings that trying to survive without supplies often spells an untimely, foolish death - meaning issue
