(E) it is.

Subjunctive mood.

(A), (B), (C): out: simultaneously using "and" and "as well"
(C): "and the telephone number of origin as well" : verb is missing.
(D): i guess it skews the actual meaning. We can include identity alongwith header and footer but not identity. I hope I am right.
"include a header or a footer with the identity of the sender" seems better than "include a header or a footer with the identification of the sender"

I go with B.
D, E are inappropriate.

identification of the sender of the message and the telephone number of origin is ambiguous.

identification (of the sender of the message and the telephone number of origin ) or (identification of the sender of the message) and (the telephone number of origin ) who knows?

Besids "with" pharse seems modify require.

...require that every fax transmission include a header or a footer with the identity of the sender of the message and the telephone number of origin....

"And" is used to join these two portions...

Initially we have to work with the plural rules telling us that we need a plural form of the verb require. So A and C are automatically out. Leaving B, D and E. In B the second use of that is redundant and wordy, along with the as well at the end of the sentence, we know it must be there as well, because the included indicates this. As for D and E, my initial response would be that the answer must be E because identity is concrete. An identity is a name. But identification could be a number of attributes, name, address, height, weight, etc. I would go with E.

"B"....bet "B", D and E....header or footer should identify the sender, D and E seem to be saying that there is no link between header or footer and the identity of the sender. Agree "B" is not a gr8 choice either.

You have written that E is subjunctive.

As I understand since "that" is preceding the underlined part of the sentence to be corrected did you come to a conclusion it is subjunctive?

If so why not "identification" instead of "identify"?

There is a nice discussion on Subjunctive mood in this thread. I guess, it answers ur question.

I dont whether I got ur question correctly..

idenity/identification has nothing to do with sunjuctive. Both are GRAMMATICALLY correct in this sentence but there meaning is slightly different.
