A...
D and E can be removed, reason we need to use have here..since agencies are ministering families so pefect tense is better.
B..due to of..in the end of the sentence
c..nonsensical.

Keniston suggests that many of the agencies ostensibly ministering to the family have only succeeded in undermining the role of parents.

(A) have only succeeded in undermining
>>> "only" should be placed next to "in the undermining".

(B) have succeeded only in the undermining of


(C) have undermined, with some success,
>>> Wordy

(D) are, with some success, only undermining
>>> Changed the meaning

(E) are only successful in that they undermine
>>> "only" should be placed next to "in the undermining".

Ans B

(if you want to know the appropriate location of "only", think about what you want to say by "only succeed", besides succeed, what do you have? fail? does it what you mean?)
