I choose B as my answer.

(A) the use of "it" after "and" creates a run-on sentence; This can be corrected either by placing a comma just before "and" or by removing the "it" after "and" so that we don't have an independant clause after "and."

(B) Correct because it corrects the issue that I already raised for A.

(C) "it" creates a clause after and because there is no comma before "and", hence this creates a run-on sentence because we don't have a proper conjunction to connect these clauses together.

(D) Parallelism is required on both sides of "and," but we have "who" after "and," but no "who" can be found before "and."

(E) "now" in option E makes it talk about the works that exist "now." Although I can see that there is a lack of parallelism, I don't really know how to correct it exactly. Nevertheless, I could still detect this issue in this answer choice.

(B) for me too...

both those who live abroad and those who live - Parallel construction.

A. now it draws on the works both of contemporary Hispanic authors who live abroad and of those -> IT is redundant and both is displaced

C. it draws on the works of contemporary Hispanic authors now, both those living abroad and who live -> it is redundant

D. draws now on the works both of contemporary Hispanic authors living abroad and who are

well, we have a run-on sentence when two independent clauses are connected without a proper conjunction between the 2 clauses. In the case of "and", it can connect phrases, but when it comes to connecting clauses, a comma must be placed before "and". For example:

Tom went to school, and he graduated.

because "Tom went" and "he graduated" are each independent clauses, there must be a comma before "and." However, we don't need a comma when "and" connects phrases. for example:

Tom went to school and graduated.

Because we don't have another subject after "and" since we have only the verb after "and", no comma is needed before "and."

in option A, we have the subject "it" along with its verb after "and," so either we need a comma or we take away the it.

you can check out the website about run-ons and also how to avoid them.

hope this helps!
