B is the answer. Which must always modify the noun immediately preceeding it. In this case, which seems to the modifying the state, in the original sentence, which is wrong.
B correctly compares the number and uses the past tense 'had been' to make the sentence parallel with the 'have been sighted' in the main clause. What is the OA?

which refers to noun before comma so A & E are wrong in C they has no referrent D is wordy and awkard

Wrong use of "which". C and D change the meaning.
