Nasty one for me.

I will go with B. This seems best among the worst.

My rationale is:
(A) and (B) are out because "from which" modifies the script and not the "with it"
(E) is awkward and (D) is out because of subj-verb agreement

(C)

Agree with Yurik and Thearch, it's C.
A and B are out, because it's not clear what "from" refers to - the script or the empire of Persia.
D is out - "derives" for "northern and southern"
E doesn't make sense with the "and" in there

(C) looks like the winner. multiple dialects so "derive" is the correct S-V construction.

Is "Arametic script" plural?

I understood that it's more on singular since there is no "s" behind "script".

Yes it is singular !Why do you ask?
In C from which derive both the northen and the southern Indian alphabets derive refers to plural cause there are 2 alphabets mentioned
