OA is coming soon. First discuss this.

KUDOS please if you like my question

Here, Each is referring ot Giant Tortoise, since this is singular. We need singular pronoun. All choices except A have Plural Pronoun

First question was posted by rakeshd347 and that post was deleted few days back. Hence the topic seems to be posted without question for no fault of the author of the current first post. Now I have posted the question in the first post.

The answer would not change.

A different variety of giant tortoises can be found on every island in the Galapagos, each with its own style of oversized dome and comically scrawny neck.

The subject of the first part (before the comma) is "a different variety" (singular, and your change doesn't affect this). The question can easily be solved if look at the fact that each (singular as the subj) requires a singular adjective its and not their. Each refers to a singular variety, to a singular subject so all must respect this.

"All" is wrong because it's plural. "A different variety can be found (...), all with"
Basically your change doesn't affect the main structure subj-verb of the original sentence, so the answer remains the same.

Hope it's clear,let me know

A different variety of giant tortoise can be found on every island in the Galapagos, each with its own style of oversized dome and comically scrawny neck.

(A) each with its own style of oversized dome and comically scrawny neck
(B) each with their own styles of oversized domes and comically scrawny necks -
(C) each having their own style of oversized dome and comically scrawny neck
(D) all having their own styles of oversized domes and comically scrawny necks => their stands for nothing. I think it would have been correct if sentence written as

A different varieties of giant tortoise can be found on every island in the Galapagos,_________ in this case "all" would have made sense.

(E) all with their own style of oversized dome and comically scrawny neck

A seems to be correct answer. It correctly conveys the message that each of tortoise has their own style of oversized domes and comically scrawny neck.
