saffron threads -- plural
so we need them not it. Eliminate A and E.
in B their is possessive form of the the noun and it has been introduced before the noun
In C is soaking is wrong and it uses being

D maintains SV agreement and uses is to soak

Option A - Incorrect

"Saffron threads" is plural. Therefore "it" does not have an antecedent.

Option B - Incorrect

The initial modifier "to best extract their flavor" - should refer to a person. Here, it refers to "saffron threads". Illogical.
"after pounding with a mortar and pestle" - After pounding what? Not clear.

Option C - Incorrect

"after being pounded …" seems to refer to the speaker of the sentence.

Option E - Incorrect

The pronoun "it" does not have an antecedent.

For the best extraction of the flavor of saffron threads, it should be soaked in liquid after being pounded with a mortar and pestle.

(A) For the best extraction of the flavor of saffron threads, it should be soaked in liquid after being pounded

I do not know what "it" refers to here. Eliminate.

(B) To best extract their flavor, saffron threads should be soaked in liquid after pounding

(Saved for now)... seems okay to me...

(C) The best way to extract the flavor from saffron threads is soaking them in liquid after being pounded

(being pounded)?

(D) The best way to extract the flavor from saffron threads is to soak them in liquid after pounding them
(No problems)...

(E) The flavor of saffron threads can best be extracted by soaking it in liquid after pounding it
(it again refers to what?) eliminate.

Now I was stuck between D and B, chose B and started crying :cry:
