I think it's "D"
as others have stated milk is not an allergy so A&B are out.
You wouldn't have an allergy "for" milk, so E is out.
Between C & D:
C implies "Researchers have questioned the use of costly and experimental diagnostic tests in order to identify food allergies, such as to milk, that supposedly disrupt normal behavior."
ie- they are doing the questioning in order to identify food allergies. wrong.

Using D, "Researchers have questioned the use of costly and experimental diagnostic tests for identifying food allergies, like that of milk, that supposedly disrupt normal behavior."
it is clear that the tests are for identifying allergies, and they are questioning the use of the tests.

What is OA?

Even i thought on similar lines but in D what does that refer to?

C is the right answer as pointed out above. D cannot be it because "that of" implies a belongingness relationship. You will say "my brother's pen or that of Scott". The portion in red is a substitute for the pen of Scott.

In the given example, the allergies of milk, ... does not make sense at all. The allergies do not belong to any of the enumerated item and the relationship should not even be. Furthermore, there is a number agreement by using "that" instead of "those".
