(A) John F. Kennedy, one of the most social U.S. presidents, held many
parties in his family home, they featured
- run on sentence
(B) Parties were held in one of the most social U.S. president’s home, John
F. Kennedy, and they featured - awkward and meaningless

(C) John F. Kennedy, who was one of the most social U.S. presidents in his
family home
, held parties that featured - meaning change, suggesting John was the most social U.S. presidents among the family home members(implied)

(D) John F. Kennedy, one of the most social U.S. presidents, held many
parties in his family home that featured non underlined part incorrectly refers to the home

I think you can easily eliminate A,B and C for the following reasons:
A) run on sentence
B) modifier is wrong-home is being modified by John F. Kennedy
C) changes the meaning of the sentence
This leaves us with D and E. I am leaning towards E because I think the placement of "in his family home" in D is incorrect. In D, the sentence is saying that the home featured elaborate meals... rather than the parties featured elaborate meals...
