I will go with C!
The sentence is passive. So, C fits nicely. "shown" is parallel to "linked"

Definitely C.

"They showed" is not parallel to have linked. So D and E are wrong. In A and B, the their suggests that the societies have high blood pressure.

C.

Can't be D or E simply b/c who's "they?" There is no referent using those choices.

Also, it would be helpful to check if the question is properly underlined before hitting submit.

Can somebody help me out..... Is the use of "where" correct in the OA?
I thought, "where" has to talk about an location or event. Is "societies" something that can utilize "where"?

How is it different from: "I want to live in an era where....."... <--- Which is incorrect

My views--

You are right about the word "where" which modifies places but here societies is used as a place.So its correct.

"I want to live in an era where--in this "In which" should be more appropriate (In Which modifies places/situations/time period/phenomenon)

Many population studies have linked a high-salt diet to high rates of hypertension and shown that in societies where they consume little salt, their blood pressure typically does not rise with age.

(A) shown that in societies where they consume little salt, their - their can refer to societies -- illogical - it is people in the societies and not the soiciety itself that can have blood pressure.

(B) shown that in societies that have consumed little salt, their - same as A

(C) shown that in societies where little salt is consumed, - Correct

(D) they showed that in societies where little salt is consumed, - usage of where is incorrect here ;"they" unambiguously refers to "many population studies", so it's fine (although it constitutes unnecessary repetition - this is already the subject of the sentence, so it needn't be repeated; see (c))
the principal problem with (d) is the lack of tense parallelism. since "have linked" is in the present perfect, the present perfect is also compulsory for the other verb (i.e., it should be "shown", not "showed").

(E) they showed that in societies where they consume little salt, their - their usage is incorrect as in A , usage of where is incorrect here

Answer C
