Although A seems to be the best among the choices, this question is having a fundamental flaw. The use of the relative pronoun 'who' to refer to the young ones of the female pandas is highly dubious. Choice D and E, however, are worth looking at for bringing out the misplaced modification to the fore.

Rssing.com should be avoided, I feel.
