The trap here is the noun "species", beacuse the "s" could let you think that the noun is plural.
The trap can easily be avoided looking to the "A" in front of the noun.

A. A new species of geese, which is discovered near the North Canadian River, are monogamous, live in permanent pairs, and are dominant WRONG for S/V Agreement Error

B. A new species of geese, discovered near the North Canadian River, are monogamous, living in permanent pairs, and dominant WRONG for S/V Agreement Error and also incorrectly suggest that the species is monogamous beacuse it lives in permanent pairs

C. A new species of geese, which are discovered near the North Canadian River, are monogamous, live in permanent pairs, and are dominant WRONG for S/V Agreement Error

D. A new species of geese, which is discovered near the North Canadian River, is monogamous, live in permanent pairs, and are dominant WRONG for S/V Agreement Error

E. A species of geese newly discovered near the North Canadian River is monogamous, lives in permanent pairs, and is dominant CORRECT ONE!

"Species of geese" is singular, thus all verbs referring to it have to be singular too. Additionally, "is discovered" is the wrong tense imo, because once you discover something the discovery process ends so the simple past (discovered) seems to be the best fitting tense.

All in all, E is the correct choice.

What helped me on this question was more the logic of the question. When you think about it, there can't be "a new species of geese" because the species would have already been in existence before it is discovered. Hence, a species of geese that was discovered recently, or newly as the sentence uses would be better. That led me straight to option E. All I had to do next was check to make sure everything was parallel and in order and alas, it is correct :)

IMO E.

Singular verb is required. So " is monogamous and is dominant is correct " A species is singular.
