A it is.

B, C, and E - Discarded because "are" is used - It needs to be singular

A sounds good to me. But I am not sure on what basis you could reject D. Any grammatical reason why D should be rejected?

Very good question.....

We have seen at multiple sources that the number should be the one closest to the noun after "nor". Here it is I....So shouldnt it be "am"??

D should be it.
but again, this is not a good construction, instead "am" should be "is" to make it a more standard way of using the construction.
I guess I read this in Wren & Martin

The answer should be A for the following reasons.

1. Correct Idiom usage Neither A nor B
2. Correct Verb Usage "am" which conforms with the singular 1st person pronoun "I" following nor.
3. Style - "who the winner is" in this sentence appears more appropriate than "who is the winner". The latter is typically used in a question.

I'll pick A, since the original sentence is preferred when there is no flaw in it
