P. S. I saw this topic in a face book posting. This question is claimed to have appeared in some CAT( probably the IIM CAT). AS I couldn't know the original source, obviously, we have to arrive at a consensus.

Came down to B and C.
Chose C because I felt B is wrong as actual doer of action i.e typograper is mentioned in the underlined section.

Kindly correct my reasoning if wrong.

I will go with B. We need digital typesetting at the end because which modifies digital typesetting
So D and E are out.

A is vague

I am confused between B and C but I chose B. I think it boiled down to the meaning of the sentence.

I think that it should be B because typographers didn't have to be typeset. Additionally this question has comma which introduces a relative clause.

Go for B because Typographers are not persons who develop the new technique.

Chose B

A) Pronoun it is ambiguous. It is not clear, what was done by meticulously type setting
B) Correct
C) Usage of pronoun "they" is erraneous
D) "which" in the non underlined portion is not referring to digital type setting
E) "which" in the non underlined portion is not referring to digital type setting
