D. which can pinpoint an individual’s location of a few inches
E. which should pinpoint an individual’s location to a few inches

Here we can easily eliminate those choices that have which since you would need a comma before which to make the sentence correct. Besides, the rest of the sentence is essential to the other part of the sentence so that must be used. C, D and E are out for these reasons.

In B, "that can pinpoint an individual’s location in a few inches", in is not the right word to use here. You can use in when you're talking about time not locations and therefore would make A the right choice given that to is properly used to express distance or location.

IMHO

HTH

I second that

However, try substitute "a few inches" to a specific number, e.g 5 meters

....that can pinpoint x location to 5 meters
....that can pinpoint x location in 5 meters

Although I also chose A in the first go, still more explanation would be helpful here.

That and which difference.

easy one
Comma is not given before that, so we need an essential modifier
So C,D and E are out.
only A or B is possible.
B is wrong because of use of preposition in
So A
