my choice : E

Chioice A,B: Having a misplaced modifier.
D: having "SEEM" plural verb for "the disapperance of lifestyles " , A singular noun. NO subject - verb agreement
E: having proper subject - verb agreement and corrected the misplaced modifier

The answer is A. If you ignore from <<such as ....... aborigines>, you can get the answer.
B gives seems whereas the verb should be seem (lifestyles)..
C starts with which which points out to the aborigines
D & E start with life styles again - not necessary.

My choice (E)

we need singular "seems" hence (A) and (D) out.
(B) and (C) have misplaces modifier and "to be" is unnecessary.

the disappearence seems inevitably doomed

I will go with E on this one.
The sentence after "aborigines," clearly talks about lifestyles. Without writing the word "lifestyles" a factor of ambiguity is brought it. This is because "requiring" could modify aborigines. I believe this ia not what the sentence is saying.
