I would say A.

B - "that are being" is incorrect verb tense, since they say the Mojave LIVED (past) while "are" is present

C - "with each being" is wrong verb formation.

D - "arrowhead to be" is wrong verb formation.

E - wrong verb tense - Mojave LIVED, roofs of pole and arrowhead that ARE (past / present doesn't match)

C. with each being a roof of poles and arrowweed

For protection from the summer sun, the Mojave lived in open-sided, flat-topped dwellings known as shades, each a roof of poles and arrowweed supported by posts set in a rectangle.
A. each a roof of poles and arrowweed --> simple and correct structure, the best
B. each a roof of poles and arrowweed that are being --> "that are being" here is awkward, and incorrect verb tense
C. with each being a roof of poles and arrowweed --> "being" here is needless
D. with roofs of poles and arrowweed to be --> "to be" here is incorrect used and makes this answer a wrong clause, which can not be used after a Noun phrase begin with with
E. with roofs of poles and arrowweed that are --> "are" is wrong verb tense here.
