(A) which reflects
(B) and that number reflects
(C) which reflect
(D) that number reflects
(E) that reflects

I am confused between B and D

"a state on the Malabar Coast" gives extra information. If we cut this phrase , the sentence convey the intended meaning . By doing so D conveyed the intended meaning. am i wrong? pls explain

B for me.

We need a correlator to relate "Kerala" with the "fact that ..." . "and" serves that purpose. Hence it is preferred over D.
