the answer should be E
this noun dishes must be there after comma ,if it is not like in A then 'not normally served' modifies giraffes and gazelles which is incorrect ,so eliminated A

usage of "Which" is incorrect. It needs a comma.

Some restaurants in Kenya offer dishes made with the meat of giraffes and gazelles not normally served in restaurants in other parts of the world.

A. dishes made with the meat of giraffes and gazelles not normally served
missing verb

B. dishes made with the meat, not normally served, of giraffes and gazelles
illogical structure

C. dishes, being made with the meat of giraffes and gazelles, not normally served
usage if being can be avoided.

D. dishes of the meat of giraffes and gazelles which are not normally served
giraffes and gazelles are not surved.

E. dishes made with the meat of giraffes and gazelles, dishes not normally served
Correct meaning and grammer.

although i got option E right, can anyone explain why option A is wrong.

IMO, option A is wrong as there is no punctuation mark.

and second part option A sounds as if gazelles are served in the restaurants instead of meat of gazelles.

please correct me if i am wrong

E. Some restaurants in Kenya offer dishes made with the meat of giraffes and gazelles, dishes not normally served
First thing is that a run-on involves two clear ICs. But choice E is just one IC and another appositive modifier ( perhaps mistakenly taken for another IC). Therefore, there is no issue of a run-on.

If I say
"Dishes that are not normally served ... "

for the second part of the sentence then will it act as a IC ?

Even then it will be wrong because an IC means a subject and a verb and a completed meaning at the minimum. The sentence you have proposed is a noun + noun modifier.
What would be an IC in this case? --Dishes are not normally served-- Of course, and then you must connect the second IC with the previous IC as we do in any compound sentence, with either a semicolon or a conjunction or a period. Otherwise, it would become run-on as you originally suspected.
The takeaway": Nearly 30 to 40 percent of the wrong choices are built around fragments and run-on in the SC. A basic knowledge about the structure involving the various types of simple sentences, complex sentences, compound sentences and the complex -compound sentences is vital to solving many of the SC topics.
