Correct Answer should be B

A) Incorrect - The original choice lacking the verb and hence can not termed as sentence. It is sentence fragment in which two back to back modifiers are modifying the subject Marie Curie. Marie Curie, winner of two Nobel Prizes in separate sciences{Modifier 1}, and who was the first female professor at the University of Paris.{Modifier 2}

B) Correct - Was acts as verb and hence we have complete sentence. Marie Curie was the first female professor at......

C) Incorrect - The use of pronoun she is unnecessary and incorrect.

D) Incorrect - for the same reason cited in Choice A

E) Incorrect - Use of and is unnecessary and incorrect. With and you can connect 1) two nouns or pronouns 2) Two independent clauses. 3) Two actions performed by the same subject. None of these is applicable in this case. Hence Incorrect

"winner of two Nobel Prizes in separate sciences" is an appositive phrase that tells us more about Marie Curie.
To make analysis easier, we can IGNORE appositive phrases, to get:

Marie Curie, winner of two Nobel Prizes in separate sciences, and who was the first female professor at the University of Paris.
At this point, we can see that the "AND" makes no sense.
"SHE" and "WHO" are unnecessary as well.
This leaves us with
