IMO the answer should be C. "Rice and Noodles" need a plural verb. In this case "forms". Additionally, "one" is singular and should use "one" to refer back to it.

"Rice and noodles" is the subject and "and" in the subject makes the subject "plural".
So, "form" should be used.
This eliminates options A and B.
"one", which is singular should be by singular which is "one" /"he".
"one"...."one" or "he"...."he".
So, options D and E are eliminated.
Correct choice is option C.

IMO, Rice and noodles, like ham and cheese, should form a singular collective noun, and hence, will take singular verb.

So, between Choices A and B, Choice A has a misplaced modifier 'as a part of dinner etiquette'.

Ans B
