I think it is A. Others are not making sense, even grammatically.

I think either A or B. It's hard to select but I will vote for "B"

In B, "the seeds of which yield flour" functions as adjective clause modifying " grasses ". It's very clear.

For A, "with seeds that yield flour" looks quite ambiguous???? This prepositional phrase can modify " grasses" at the front or "wheat" at the back???


How about QA?

Answer should be E

<B>Of all the grasses with seeds </B> should be followed by some kind of grass, and not wheat (a seed)

Only E corrects this error by starting with "A flour-yielding seed...., wheat"

That is true. However, can we use "from among" as used in E?
That is my doubt.
