I suspect the answer is A!!

By the way, answering your question...the expression 'visible on many' clearly modifies the noun touching it i.e. the 'green "bloom"'

a) visible on many copper items, and is produced - Correct. ‘Visible’ and ‘is produced’ are related to ‘’green bloom’’ and are parallel.

b) that is visible on many copper items, and which produces – That & Which parallelism error. Also, ‘Produces’ changes the meaning.

c) visible on many copper items, and produces - It seems green ‘’bloom’’ produces sth instead of it is being produced (change in meaning due to passive to active)

d) that is visible on many copper items, and that produces – Same as C

e) which is visible on many copper items, and which is produced – There should be comma before Which. ‘Visible’ and ‘is produced’ are essential information therefore non-restrictive clause with ‘Which’ is wrong.

Correct me if i missed sth....

My answer is A.

B and D can be eliminated because you don´t use THAT when the modified noun (green "bloom") is the object of the clause.
C can be eliminated from the intended meaning of the sentence. it must be "Aerogu,...,and is produced"
between A and E, I choose A because "which" is used to refer to the preceding noun. In this case the second "which" in the sentence do not has a preceding noun.

a) visible on many copper items, and is produced -- fine - hold it.
b) that is visible on many copper items, and which produces -- parallelism error -- we can not have that || which clause.
c) visible on many copper items, and produces -- produces (active voice) -- Aerugo is not producing anything here, instead it is being produced by something.
d) that is visible on many copper items, and that produces -- same as C -- active voice issue.
e) which is visible on many copper items, and which is produced. -- by keeping two clause parallel at same level. we are introducing ambiguity that "by the exposure ... blah blah" is making bloom visible as well, but that is not the case here; passive part only required for "is produced".

Can somebody suggest what ''visible on many....'' refers or modifies to ? Bloom i.e. immediate noun or Aerugo ?

Please let me know what are the Modifiers rule for such constructions.

It's a bit debatable. Here bloom refers to Aerugo; therefore modifier to bloom is indirectly referring to Aerugo. Such reference is acceptable.
A should be the answer.
