The correct Idiom is 'between ... and'. Choice D and E are out.

B) Correct pronoun for language would be 'it' and not them.

C) Wordy. But those who have tried counting it is awkward.

My choice, A.

A seems to be the right choice.

Earlier I got confused with the usage of 'it' in the option A.
I thought 'it' is refering to languages but later on I found that 'it' was refering to World.

A) and the sub-languages or dialects within it, but those who have tried to count typically have found Correct (Correct use of 'it' and tense)
B) and the sub-languages or dialects within them, with those who have tried counting typically finding (Incorrect use of 'them', incorrect use of tense)
C) and the sub-languages or dialects within it, but those who have tried counting it typically find (Incorrect use of tense)
D) or the sub-languages or dialects within them, but those who tried to count them typically found (Incorrect use of 'them', incorrect use of tense)
E) or the sub-languages or dialects within them, with those who have tried to count typically finding (Incorrect use of 'them', incorrect use of 'with' and incorrect use of tense)

"a" signals that we need the singular "it" referent.

C is a little redundant, so the best answer is (A).
