I think B is the answer -

Jamieson’s proposal was rejected for several reasons, the chief among which was cost.

(A) the chief among which was cost - doesnt make sense
(B) among which the chief was its cost - this modifier correctly modifies 'reasons'. Also 'its' refers to the proposal.
(C) the main one was cost - this would have been correct if there was a semicolon separating the 2 independent clauses
(D) the chief reason of which was its cost - 'of which' not idiomatic
(E) the chief of which was cost - 'of which' not idiomatic

What is the OA?

I am of the view that it is D. "Chief" alone appears akward. What is the OA?

(A) the chief among which was cost --> incorrect construction
(B) among which the chief was its cost --> incorrect construction
(C) the main one was cost --> one is ambiguious (it could modify proposal or reasons)
(D) the chief reason of which was its cost --> redundancy (reason - which)
(E) the chief of which was cost


E is the correct answer. Which modifies reasons. The chief of which here means the chief reason.
