A- that despite the increasing popularity of new, digital information sources, the financial success of the weekly magazine–or at least some of the weekly magazines–seem secure for some time to come( Subject verb agreement,seems is correct)

B- that, despite the increasing popularity of new, digital information sources, the financial success of the weekly magazine–or at least some of them–seems secure for some time to come ( what does them refers to)

C- that, despite the increasing popularity of new, digital information sources, the financial success of the weekly magazine–or at least some of the weekly magazines–seems secure for some time to come( that should follow the financial success of the weekly magazine)

D- that the financial success of the weekly magazine–or at least some of the weekly magazines–seems secure for some time to come, this is despite the increasing popularity of new, digital information sources( correct)

E- that the financial success of the weekly magazine–or at least some of the weekly magazines–seemed secure for some time to come, despite the increasing popularity of new, digital information sources( wrong verb tense,present tense is required)

Will go with choice D

E- that the financial success of the weekly magazine–or at least some of the weekly magazines–seemed secure for some time to come, despite the increasing popularity of new, digital information sources

Subject: - Increasing Popularity
Therefore correct verb: - seems and not seem as singular i.e A out

Also, key point is that which seperates it into different clauses.
So Option C correct

A- that despite the increasing popularity of new, digital information sources, the financial success of the weekly magazine–or at least some of the weekly magazines–seem secure for some time to come --> singular subject "the weekly magazine" requires singular verb seems

B- that, despite the increasing popularity of new, digital information sources, the financial success of the weekly magazine–or at least some of them–seems secure for some time to come --> what is the antecedent of them?

C- that, despite the increasing popularity of new, digital information sources, the financial success of the weekly magazine–or at least some of the weekly magazines–seems secure for some time to come --> correct

D- that the financial success of the weekly magazine–or at least some of the weekly magazines–seems secure for some time to come, this is despite the increasing popularity of new, digital information sources --> what is "this"?

E- that the financial success of the weekly magazine–or at least some of the weekly magazines–seemed secure for some time to come, despite the increasing popularity of new, digital information sources --> past tense is not required
