B and D changes the meaning by saying the writer serves as the piece of evidence.
C and E ignore parallelism.

A is the best pick.

A) In his best-selling book The Omnivore's Dilemma, which social critics see as yet another piece of evidence to support their thesis of a burgeoning interest in natural food among Americans, Michael Pollan elucidates industrial farming, explains organic farming, and discusses hunting and gathering food for oneself. - Correct - 'which' correctly refers to the book. No issues with modifiers and elements are parallel.

B) Michael Pollan, in his best-selling book The Omnivore’s Dilemma, which social critics see as yet another piece of evidence to support their thesis of a burgeoning interest in natural foods among Americans, elucidates industrial farming, explaining organic farming and discussing hunting and gathering food for oneself. - Incorrect - Parallelism error

C) In his best-selling book The Omnivore’s Dilemma, elucidating industrial farming, explaining organic farming, and discussing hunting and gathering food for oneself, Michael Pollan gives social critics yet another piece of evidence to support their thesis of a burgeoning interest in natural food among Americans. - Incorrect - Modifier error. It appears as though the book itself elucidates industrial farming instead of the author 'Michael Pollan'.

D) Michael Pollan, in his best-selling book The Omnivore’s Dilemma, serving as yet another piece of evidence to support the thesis of a burgeoning interest in natural food among Americans, elucidates industrial farming, explains organic farming, and discusses hunting and gathering food for oneself. - Incorrect - Modifier error. 'serving as yet .....' incorrectly modifies the previous clause which has Michael Pollan as subject.

E) In his best-selling book The Omnivore's Dilemma, which is seen by social critics as yet another piece of evidence to support their thesis of a burgeoning interest in natural food among Americans, Michael Pollan elucidates industrial farming, explaining organic farming and discussing hunting and gathering food for oneself. - Incorrect - Parallelism error

OFFICIAL EXPLANATION

A. the subject (Michael Pollan) and verb (elucidates) are placed close together, making the sentence easily comprehensible; the modifying phrases refer to the proper phrases or nouns

B. the subject (Michael Pollan) and verb (elucidates) are separated by two long modifying phrases, creating a sentence that is awkward and unclear

C. the modifying phrase In his best-selling book The Omnivore’s Dilemma is illogically and improperly separated from the noun it is meant to modify (i.e., Michael Pollan)

D. the modifying phrase In his best-selling book The Omnivore’s Dilemma is illogically and improperly separated from the noun it is meant to modify (i.e., Michael Pollan)

E. the three traits of the book The Omnivore’s Dilemma are not parallel: elucidates...explaining...discussing; the correct parallelism would be: elucidates..., explains..., and discusses
