my choice : E

Chioice A,B: Having a misplaced modifier.
D: having "SEEM" plural verb for "the disapperance of lifestyles " , A singular noun. NO subject - verb agreement
E: having proper subject - verb agreement and corrected the misplaced modifier

The answer is A. If you ignore from <<such as ....... aborigines>, you can get the answer.
B gives seems whereas the verb should be seem (lifestyles)..
C starts with which which points out to the aborigines

My choice (E)

we need singular "seems" hence (A) and (D) out.
(B) and (C) have misplaces modifier and "to be" is unnecessary.

the disappearence seems inevitably doomed

I will go with E on this one.
The sentence after "aborigines," clearly talks about lifestyles. Without writing the word "lifestyles" a factor of ambiguity is brought it. This is because "requiring" could modify aborigines. I believe this ia not what the sentence is saying.
