My ans is E.

Firstly, powers of observation (plural), hence 'make' and not 'makes'.
Secondly, 'which' correctly refers to 'group' that rivals the best novels.

A, B & C are out because of S-V disagreement. Powers plural makes singular

Between D & E, it is D.

E is wrong because

(1) Which is used with out a comma

(2) powers of O make his letters a group. Nope

D correctly conveys the meaning.
