I am unable to understand the usage of "Just+Who". Would who alone be sufficient? Why do we need just?

I think you are missing the meaning of the sentence. The sentence actually means that who inspired the studies is missing. Who needs to have a singular verb form 'has' instead of 'have'

Is the use of pronoun "them" unecessary in option E???

Something or someone must have inspired John Constable to create art pieces with clouds as a subject, and these art pieces are prized by art collectors. However, who or what has inspired Constable's art pieces of clouds are not yet known.

My understanding of the meaning:
We still not sure about who/what has inspired John whose enigmatic cloud studies are so marvelous that are much appreciated by the collectors.

Hope it helps

The subject of the sentence: "Just who inspired English painter John Constable’s marvelously enigmatic cloud studies"

The main verb of the sentence: "has" ("have" in incorrect answers)

"inspired" is the verb of the relative clause "who inspired English painter John Constable’s marvelously enigmatic cloud studies," which clause serves as the subject of the sentence.
