A. exhibit, which thereby activates : CORRECT
B. exhibit, in turn an activation of : wierd sentence
C. exhibit, and it will activate : ambiguous "it"
D. exhibit and thereby activate : SV agreement error. "touch" is singular, we need "activateS"
E. exhibit which, as a result, activates : comma missing before "which"

It looks awkward to me if the animation function is activated by an exhibit instead of visitors. So I'd go with (D).

I think D is correct, as I chose earlier. Here is my analysis:-

A is incorrect because which after the comma modifies the noun preceeding it, in this case "exhibit". Clearly its not the exhibit that activates the animated functions.

What about the S-V agreement in D??? what plural noun activate the animated function. I think its the touch that activateS the animated functions.

D is best: encourage visitors to touch and...(to) activate... the second 'to' can be omitted, as it is in the sentence- touch is a verb here, not a noun, so the use of 'which' is imprecise

The visitors are encouraged to touch and to activate. The visitors are the ones activating the functions.

With a single touch, he activated the time bomb.

It was "he" not the touch that activated the time bomb.

How about this:

A single touch by a soldier activated the time bomb.

Touch can also activate the functions. So I think D is ambiguous.

agreed my example of touch was not representative of the problem at hand. kevin is right, in this case the word touch is a verb, and not the subject....
