Injera, an East African flatbread ; singular pronoun to be used so option D & E are left ..
In E mention of it is ambigous so option D is correct.
IMO D

A and b are out because of singular and plural verb reasons use of verb are..
In D we have a parallelism here the use of has been and is still used ..
verb to be is used ..
E is wrong because of the ambiguous phrase many Ethiopians today, who use..

Injera, an East African flatbread, has been a main component of Ethiopian dishes for generations and are still used by many Ethiopians today, who use it to feed themselves in the same manner Americans use flatware.

meaning :
Injera : main component of E
: is used by E in the same manner A us F

Note: The comaprison at the end is about the "use" of injera and not the manner of feeding practice !!

Grammar : SV : INjera(singular) - has
Eliminate : A and B

(C) it is still used today by many Ethiopians, who use it to feed themselves
- We do not have a comma before "And" and the subject is still the "injera" so we do not need to start a new clause by intoduving a prooun and thus creating a clause " it (subject) is (verb) " ...

(D) is still used today by many Ethiopians to feed themselves
- The ending comaprison is prcise and unambiguous !
!

(E) is still used by many Ethiopians today, who use it to feed themselves
- The end comaprison seems to between the manner of feeding and not the use of injera !!! also the placement fof "who" coul be bettter !!

(A) are still used by many Ethiopians today, who use it to feed themselves

(B) are still used by many Ethiopians today, who feed themselves with it

(C) it is still used today by many Ethiopians, who use it to feed themselves

(D) is still used today by many Ethiopians to feed themselves

(E) is still used by many Ethiopians today, who use it to feed themselves


OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



D. is still used today by many Ethiopians to feed themselves

Because the subject of the sentence (injera) is singular, the proper verb is the singular is rather than are. Eliminate Choices (A) and (B). Choice (C) introduces an unnecessary pronoun, it, that also causes the sentence to be improperly punctuated. The addition of it creates another independent clause, and independent clauses linked by a conjunction such as and must also be separated by a comma. Between Choice (D) and Choice (E), (D) is the better constructed option. The adverb today describes when the bread is used and therefore should occupy a position close to the verb used, as presented in Choice (D). Choice (D) also eliminates the redundant inclusion of a second use. You already know that Ethiopians use the bread; you don’t need to state the action again. Choice (D) is the properly worded answer.
