a) Since we agree that B doesn't really work meaning-wise, it's a tricky exercise to discuss what one word means. However, it seems most sensible for "its" to refer to "each," since both meaning and proximity indicate that as the intention. Each different style is a product of its regional influences.

b) In D, "each" introduces a noun modifier applying to "styles" (of cooking). As for "with," that's just what I was saying previously. In this case it creates an adverbial modifier, and there's no sensible way for that to apply.

"With" isn't really necessary in A and B. Since we are talking about nouns (cooking styles), it doesn't really make sense to try to modify the verb or clause. However, both A and B are wrong for other reasons. In A, "their" (plural) does not agree with "each" (singular). In B, it's not clear what the "as" means. There's no comparison or role to indicate. Each style is a product of its regional influences.

thank you expert. I want to make clear

whereas "noun+noun modifier" can work as adverb or adjective to modify preceding clause or preceding noun, "with+noun+noun modifier" can work as only adverb modifying the preceding clause. this is the reason why "with phrase " in choice a and be must work as an adverb gramatically

but logically, if the phrase work as an adverb, "each" become unclear because we do not know to which noun it refers.

if , as in choice d, "each.." work as an adjective , it can refer to a preceding noun "styles" and the sentence is good.

Interesting idea, but "styles" is the only word that "each" can reasonably refer to, so I'm not sure that helps us in this case.
