cientists working on a number of separate projects made contributions to the invention of the radio, such as Nikola Tesla, who was one of the first to receive a patent in the United States for what was then called “wireless transmission of data.”

(A) radio, such as Nikola Tesla - read this as "radio, for example Nikola Tesla" :) funny
(B) radio; including as Nikola Tesla - including as iw wrong, wordy, semicolon is not required, 2nd part is a sentence fragment.
(C) radio, including Nikola Tesla - keep it cool. [highlight]OK[/highlight]
(D) radio; not least among them being Nikola Tesla - extremly wordy, D is out
(E) radio; especially Nikola Tesla - wordy, semicolon is not required, 2nd part is a sentence fragment.

+1 for C
This one is choosing b/n dependent and independent clause

Yup, C.
If there is a semi-colon, there have to be two separate clauses. None of them can be fragments.

PTK : My reasoning was that the non underlined sentence states 'who was one of the first'. So a team of scientists worked on the invention of radio. And nikolas tesla was one among them, hence I picked including. Is the reasoning correct.?
