Between (A) and (C), I will pick (A).

(A): Nobody knows exactly how many languages there are in the world, partly because of the difficulty of distinguishing between a language and the sub-languages or dialects within it, but those who have tried to count typically have found about five thousand.

1. between a language and the sub-languages...
2. "it" refers to "language"
3. An independent clause is introduced with a conjunction "but" : but those who have tried to count typically have found about five thousand


(D)&(E): out: correct usage is "between X and Y"
(B): 1. them <--> language (singular) wrong.
2. Prepostional Phrase : "with those..." does not modify anything.
(C): "..... tried counting it..." we can count languages not language (which is already 1).

A) and the sub-languages or dialects within it, but those who have tried to count typically have found............ ok.

B) them is incorrect to refer language. who have tried counting typically finding is also not idiomatic expression.
C) it in those who have tried counting it typically find
D) them, is not correct. but those who tried to count them typically found is also not correct.
E) them, and typically finding are wrong.

My asnwer is A....

I was able to get rule out D and E just on between/and idiom...

Out of A, B and C..I ruled out B because "a language" and "them" do not agree in number

And between A and C I pick A because "it" does not agree in number with languages.
