I will go with D; As there are multiple objects, it has to be among and not between . I believe among also uses and conjunctions to show the subgroups.
For Eg: I dont like anyone among you , your sister and your friends.

I will go with D;
The correct way to express is- choose/ select among A, B, C, D and E.

Here per intended meaning is better to use choose

Among always takes AND not or

So D should be the right answer

A question regarding the use of between and among...

Since we have more than two objects but all of them are specified, isn't this an exception in which we can use between?

If the passage said "four types of bikes" instead of "mountain, road, street, and even hybrid bicycles" it would be clear to me that we should use among.

Can anyone explain this to me?

carcass? WaterFlowsUp?

Thanks

I don't like the question. Here is the case when "between" can be used with objects that count more than two.
