It appears illogical to some people that West Germany, which bans such seeming lesser evils as lawn-mowing on Sundays, still has some 4,000 miles of highway with no speed limit.

use of which is correct here, : Comma + which , its referring correctly back to noun it is touching i.e germany.
banning is incorrect use of modifier ,: we don't need modifier to convey whole meaning of sentence : why or what

Choice B corrects all this
IMO B

[quote="Bunuel"]It appears illogical to some people that West Germany, which bans such seeming lesser evils as lawn-mowing on Sundays, still has some 4,000 miles of highway with no speed limit.

(A) which bans such seeming lesser evils as>> seeming is modifying lesser which is an adjective. We need a adverb here.
(B) which bans such seemingly lesser evils as>> correct as it is.
(C) which is banning such seeming lesser evils like >> is banning. >> this indicates the action is happening now. But what the sentence presents a fact that is generally true.
(D) banning such evils that seem lesser, for example >> Awkward. And I also feel that the use such and for example is redundant.
(E) banning such seeming lesser evils like >> like is used to introduce examples.
