Also "which" cannot be used to introduce "Restrictive clause - Scrawled on stationery". Even if it is used, it should have been preceded by a comma.

E. stationery with a letterhead from a title insurance company, the recipe is describing in some detail how to prepare for a stuffing for

What is Scrawled - > Recipe. Eliminate C. Recipe is singular - > A is eliminated. In D described is wrong as description is still present.
Multiple issues with E. is describing is wrong , no need of a helping verb here. How to prepare for is wrong again.

B wins.

GREEN:PREP Phrase RED:verb BLUE = Subject
Scrawled on stationery
which has a letterhead from a title insurance company,
the recipe describe in some detail how to prepare a stuffing for chicken or turkey.

recipe need singular verb describes

A:Wrong. Which needs to be after a comma here. Only when which follows a preposition then a comma may/may not be needed. eg:On the table is a box in which i keep all my files.-->No need of comma.
B:Correct. SV agreement is proper for recipe..describes.
C:Wrong:Scrawled is a verb-ed modifier and needs to modify the recipe not the recipe's description.
D:Wrong: as to how to is wordy.
E:Wrong: how to prepare for is incorrect.

Is the usage of "that" in D correct? I know it is not the answer but I predicted that instead of which
