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

I second that :wink:

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
