it modifies the pronoun the child weight gain, thus B, C and E left.
For B, I think the if clause should be " a child weighing....." as it sounds more logical . If we say "if its weight gain has been below average" , it sounds like the child's weight must exactly increase to 13.5 pounds.
C is out due to wrong tense of "be"
E is my choice.
