IMO A.

'you' is the subject. All other pronouns should be the object.

'She' and 'who' are wrongly used. We can eliminate C,D & E.

We are left with A & B.
A. her with whom you share your secrets, not me
B. her with whom you share your secrets, not I.

Again, considering the objective form, I go with A.

IMO A,

The sentence is basically: It ought to be her, not me.

Since both 'Her' and 'Me' are the Object of the verb 'ought', so the answer is A.

I think A- basically I thought of the sentence as You should share your secrets with her, not me.

I think you all make good points here. To summarize:

-use object pronouns (her, him, me, you, us, them, whom) when the action is being done TO that person:

Bill gave the ring to HER.
Bill sent HIM a letter.

-use subject pronouns (I, you, he, she, we, they who) when the action is being done BY that person.

HE gave the ring to her.
WE told you it wouldn't work.
I went to the store.

Notice how subject pronouns are paired with a verb (He gave, we told, I went) but object pronouns don't.
