I think there should be 'is' instead of are, and I don't think confirm is correct word...so,D is my answer

I think its A
Let's wait for the OA

My reasoning
-A few hunts are plural?
- Completely - adverb is modifying the Adjective Self-performed.

I will go with B as well.

Below is my reasoning:

A. a few completely self-performed hunts are a fine indication that
B. a few completely self-performed hunts confirm that correct
C. a few hunts completely performed by self are indicative that passive
D. a few completely self-performed hunts is a fine indication that (hunts should be accompanied with are, not is which is singular
E. completing a few self-performed hunts are a fine indication that alters meaning

B cannot be right because "confirm" distorts the intended meaning of the given question

A cub is often weaker than a kitten and needs protection from the mother lioness; a few completely self-performed hunts are a fine indication that the child lion has grown enough to fend itself against the wild animals.

A. a few completely self-performed hunts are a fine indication that ==> Correct, "are" matches with "a few completely...hunts"
B. a few completely self-performed hunts confirm that ==> the sentence may not contain any grammatical errors, but the meaning does not match with what was originally intended, the hunts are considered indications, they do not confirm that the child lion has grown enough to fend itself against the wild animals.
C. a few hunts completely performed by self are indicative that==> "are" does not match with "a few hunts...by self", here the the subject is not "a few hunts", but rather the subject clause "a few...self".
D. a few completely self-performed hunts is a fine indication that ==> "is" does not agree with "a few .... hunts".
E. completing a few self-performed hunts are a fine indication that ==> "are" does not agree with "completing..hunts", which is an subject clause.
