B,
the structure "One of the" is key here.
Since for the form ("one of the" + plural noun + that +Verb) , the verb has to be plural, hence determine is the right verb.
So we can omit C,D,E
in option 1, its wrongly using "their" .

(A) they are crucially important, a person's total calorie intake is only one of the many factors that determine if their weight will increase or decrease

(B) it is crucially important, a person's total calorie intake is only one of the many factors that determine whether his or her weight will increase or decrease
His or her = singular for a person correct, determine= plural for factors correct
I am just confused if we can write "(clause) It is .......important, (clause) a person's calorie intake.................".

(C) it is a crucially important factor, a person's total calorie intake is the only one of many that determines whether his or her weight will increase or decrease

(D) crucially important, a person's total calorie intake is only one of the many factors that determines the increase or decrease in their weight

(E) it is crucially important, a person's total calorie intake is the only one of many factors that determines the increase or decrease in his or her weight[/quote]
