Imo-

When we read A , it says all of the thousands of stories
B and C change the meaning , they essentially mean World's stories, which in this context is incorrect , B is also unnecessarily wordy
the usage of to be in incorrect in D
E again changes the meaning , also the non essential modifier "which" must be preceded by a comma

So,
A

A. that all of the thousands of stories written by the world’s authors are essentially variations of - Correct

...all ......stories.....are essentially variations of six basic plot themes.

B. that the world’s thousands of stories written by authors of which all are essentially variations of

( Aladdin's thousands of stories = Thousands of stories of Aladdin ) i.e. thousands of stories of world written....

Change of meaning.

C. that the world’s thousands of stories written by the authors are essentially variations of - Same as B

D. all of the thousands of stories written by the world’s authors to be essentially variations of

E. that the world’s authors have written thousands of stories which are essentially variations of

"Which" used in a restrictive clause. GMAT uses "that" for this purpose. "which" is used in non-restrictive clause.
