Subjct- verb agreement, Here brings point to the subject treatments, so we need a plural verb bring.
A,C,D is out.

Between B and E, B looks better when compared

I always get confused in similar questions thinking what "that" should refer to. Immediate noun Or anything which make sense to the sentence.

Immediate noun (baldness) does not make sense but treatments for baldness do. So instead of "brings" I would use "bring" and between B and E, will go for B

+1 for B.

Waiting on OA.
