The answer is (A).
Choice (A) is correct as written. Who’s is the contraction for who is and “who is to blame”
makes sense here.
Choice (B) uses the possessive form, which is grammatically incorrect in this sentence.
Choice (C) changes the wording in an effort to fix the sentence but inadvertently creates a
different error: who to blame is never correct. Blame requires an object and the proper form, then,
would be whom.
Choice (D) simply gets rid of the contraction by spelling it out—not the right approach.
Choice (E) is madness, you must agree.

To blame someone : "someone" is the object of "blame". However, "who" is a subject pronoun, and hence C is wrong. However if the pronounce were "whom" ( which is an object pronoun), then the sentence would be alright:

I need to know whom to blame for all the mistakes I found.... correct.
