Which is referring Vision. as which cannot modify person. So D wins.
The question is similar to OG 12 SC Q#26, in which the word which modifies letters instead of Dickinson

B has a change in meaning.

William Blake experienced visions of God continuously in his Childhood.

However the original sentence means that the

William Blake experienced visions of God frequently in his Childhood.

khv It's not quite right to say that "visions of God" is the subject. It's actually the object. "Blake" is the subject and "experienced" is the verb. However, you're right that "who" is incorrect in B. If we want to modify "visions," we want "which," and if we want to modify "God," we'd want to use "whom" unless God were actually serving as the subject (performing an action). If God is just being seen, then we want the object form: "whom."

Perfectly possible !!
The problem with A is with "whom". "whom" is a object pronoun, so must act as an object. In A, "whom continued... " is incorrect, it must be "who continued". At the same time, B uses "who" incorrectly, it must be "whom" - because we need an object for "claimed", hence an object case pronoun.

Moreover, you don't need to decide whether "which" refer to "God" or "visions of God" because there are no splits such as "which have/ which has". At times, you may need to decide on the reference - https://gmatclub.com/forum/for-many-rev ... 60640.html - but then, it will be very clear from the surrounding context what "which" needs to refer. Here, honestly, its not that much clear ... because,
What you are describing is a claim, "he claimed" is the keyword here, so He can claim anything - be it impossible alternatives that God, instead of visions of God, returned to him throughout his childhood. So, this is not the correct split to rely on.
