whom is used for living person only. C and E left incomplete sentence .

Straight B is the answer.

What is wrong with C?

That does not carry any comma before, meaning it is rightly set up and there is a subject + verb.
In other words, how do you choose between C and B? Or what is wrong with C?
How to be 100% certain on it?

Hey albertziade ,

C is incorrect because it is an incomplete sentence.

Let's break the sentence using C as the option.

Polynesia is an archipelago with at least thousand islands, nineteen that have official recognition

Now, I believe you know that is used as a restrictive modifier and it is referring to Nineteen and not the islands. So, if I remove the modifier, my sentence would become

Polynesia is an archipelago with at least thousand islands, nineteen.

Now, this nineteen is not making a complete sentence. Hence, C is incorrect.

Whereas in option B, we have used "which". This is refering back to the noun before the comma and it is implying the meaning that those islands are officially recognised.

Polynesia is an archipelago with at least thousand islands, among whom nineteen have official recognition.

Does that make sense?

B is straight answer here .... A and D eliminated because of usage of whom which is used as an object and only for living persons.....C and E are incomplete sentences
