In Option A & D, "it" refers to Aspirin, which distorts the meaning of the Sentence.

In Option C....meaning is altered

In Option E, the clause "which can be ....." incorrectly modifies Aspirin while it should modify irritation.

Hence Option B is the correct option.

Please underline the question while posting!

B it is
what can be avoided - irritation. (Subject)
Also in E, I think which modifies stomach not the aspirin. hence wrong.
So only B stands for irritation to be a Subject.
