According to a recent study by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the incidence of reported neck and back pain correlate positively to the amount of time spent in sitting positions at work.

A- correlate positively to - Use of plural verb CORRELATE for singular subject INCIDENCE is incorrect. Moreover, CORRELATE TO Idiomatically incorrect. Hence Incorrect.
B- are correlated positively to - - Use of plural verb ARE for singular subject INCIDENCE is incorrect. Moreover, CORRELATE TO Idiomatically incorrect. Hence Incorrect.
C- correlate positively with - - Use of plural verb CORRELATE for singular subject INCIDENCE is incorrect. Hence Incorrect.
D- are positively correlated to - Use of plural verb ARE for singular subject INCIDENCE is incorrect. Placement of POSITIVELY changes the original intent. Moreover, CORRELATE TO Idiomatically incorrect. Hence Incorrect.
E- correlates positively with - CORRECT

E is the correct answer

"incidence" needs singular verb, E is the only answer with "correlates"

The subject is "the incidence", which is singular. Hence, we need to use singular verb, "correlates"

(E) is your answer
