B for me.

C&E eliminated on the basis of plural subject and singular verb.
A & E both contain "does"-singular that refers to "genetic heritage and family background"- plural so incorrect.
Thus B is the correct choice.

is "DO" a plural form of verb ?

Not a plural. I think my explanation was a little confusing.
It also depends on first person or third person singular/plural.
First person singular/plural - do
third person singular - does
third person plural - do

A.predetermine certain actions of every individual, and so does : SV disagreement: genetic heritage and family background (plural ) so do
B.predetermine certain actions of every individual, as do : Correct
C.predetermines certain actions of every individual, and so do : SV disagreement
D.predetermines certain actions of every individual, as does : same as C & for 2nd part SV disagreement
E.predetermine certain actions of every individual, as does Same as D (2nd part)

I agree with B.

We have to be careful to distinguish between singular and plural as we progress through the sentence, I believe that choice B does the best choice of sticking with the right choice in that sense
