D.

each .... indicates ..

thus narrows it down to D and E.
and "the degree to which" is the correct usage.

D and E use the correct form of verb.
D is better because of using the 'the degree to which'.

D

Also, in my opinion, "the extent of" and "the degree that" shows consistency/parallelism.

D agrees with the subject "each photograph" and "degree to which" is the right expression compared to option E.

Clearly it is down to D and E on the basis of subject-verb agreement. "Indicates" is appropriate.
E is eliminated as - "extent to flooding" - is unidiomatic in this context.
