(A) demand that each and every person cooperate together in order to reach a consensus of opinion
cooperate together---makes the sentence unnecessary wordy as both convey the same meaning one would suffice
a consensus of opinion is also wordy.

(B) demands that each and every person cooperate in order to reach a consensus of opinion.
--one of those students who modifies students(plural) ---so plural verb demand is required.
example--one of the students...........singular verb
--one of the students who......plural verb

(C) demand that each person cooperate so that a consensus could be reached.
correct plural verb--demand -----------demand(bossy verb)+that+each person(subject)+cooperate(bare form of verb -s) (correct)

(D) demands that each person cooperates so that a consensus could be reached.
demands is incorrect-------cooperates is also wrong

(E) demands that each person cooperate so that a consensus can be reached.
plural verb demand is required for plural subject students

This is what i like to call a reverse split. Wherein, the question tries to trick you into choosing (or atleast waste valuable time) the wrong split by proving more of those.

How do we know which split is right?
WHO refers to whatever immediately precedes it. Which in this case is "students". Hence, we choose the plural "demand".
B/w A&C
each and every person is just too wordy and unnecessary.
