A is the correct answer here.

Hippies is plural. So we need "their" => B and E out.
D is awkward as usage of "such" distorts the meaning.
A uses the correct relative clause => which modifies the "peace movements" (noun closest to it).

a) their desire for pacifism and tolerance through peace movements, which included HIPPIES AND THEIR=PARALLEL, WHICH AFTER A COMA AND WHICH INCLUDED IS PRECISE TO MODIFY THE NOUN BEFORE IT.
b) its desire for pacifism and tolerance through peace movements, which included HIPPIES ARE PLURAL SO ITS IS NOT CORRECT

their is correct and should be there in the correct answer. Leaves us with A and C.
Between A and C => C is too wordy with "that were to include". Hence A is the correct answer!

a) their desire for pacifism and tolerance through peace movements, which included
b) its desire for pacifism and tolerance through peace movements, which included
c) their desire for pacifism and tolerance through peace movements, that were to include
d) such desire for pacifism and tolerance through peace movements, which included
e) its desire for pacifism and tolerance through peace movements,including

In answer choice A , isn't it "Which include" rather than "Which included" since peace movements is plural.
