I would go with B .

his is not correct since until that point of time the person not been mentioned , so pronoun does not have any noun to point to .

I picked C. "he" is seems to be ambiguous in A,B,D. E change the meaning.

Another C
HE in all other choices doesn't have clear antecedent. HE may refer to Cameron or his friend.

I'll go for D.

My reasoning; The first part of the sentence is in the possesive, therefore the noun it modifies has to also be in the possesive.

I like D, as it best syncs with the preceding modifier.

This sentence has pronoun (possessive poison) issue.
His requires referent - eliminate A, C and E

Between B and D:

B – Passive voice – eliminate it

A his friend told Cameron that he should probably leave
B Cameron was told by his friend that he should probably leave
C his friend told Cameron that Cameron should probably leave
D Cameron's friend told Cameron that he should probably leave
E his friend told him to leave probably

Answer: D

In reply to Cameron's irrational criticisms, his friend told Cameron that he should probably leave.

A his friend told Cameron that he should probably leave --> answer
B Cameron was told by his friend that he should probably leave was told make the sentence passive
C his friend told Cameron that Cameron should probably leave use of cameron twice adds to redundancy
D Cameron's friend told Cameron that he should probably leave use of cameron twice adds to redundancy
E his friend told him to leave probably sentence ends in probably. ackwards

In reply to Cameron's irrational criticisms, his friend told Cameron that he should probably leave.
A his friend told Cameron that he should probably leave
B Cameron was told by his friend that he should probably leave
C his friend told Cameron that Cameron should probably leave
D Cameron's friend told Cameron that he should probably leave
E his friend told him to leave probably

Another vote for D.

Reason:
In the first part of the sentense "Cameron's" is purely an adjective of the noun - "criticisms".
The suject in the first part is clearly "criticisms" , so all the options that start with "his" is wrongly attempting to point to "criticisms". No where is Cameron mentioned as noun.
Eliminate A,C and E.

Now between B and D,B is in passive voice.

In D , "that" is connecting Cameron to the next sentense so "he" should be refering back to "Cameron".
