IMO B
Stranger things is the subject so A, D are out.
Commercial should modify success hence E is out.
For counted as Vs counted among, I feel like counted among is the idiom.

Stranger Things, along with The Hunt for Red October and No Country for Old Men, are counted as among the best examples of commercially successful works set in the 1980s.

Intended Meaning : Stranger Things (a commercially successful work) is counted among the best examples of commercially successful works set in the 1980s.

Also, one more thing to note here is that there is only one MAIN SUBJECT in the above question. The other subjects are the part of the non-vital modifier, so they cannot contribute to make a complex subject.

(A) are counted as among the best examples of commercially successful
PRONOUN NUMBER AGREEMENT ERROR for a singular commercially successful work -- Stranger Things.

(B) is counted among the best examples of commercially successful
CORRECT.

(C) is counted as one of the best example of commercially successful
Meaning Error. As per the intended meaning, Stranger Things, along with 2 other works, is counted among the best examples of commercially successful work. Option C, instead means that Stranger Things is only the best example of commercially successful work. As it says 'ONE OF THE BEST EXAMPLE' and not 'ONE OF THE BEST EXAMPLES' of commercially successful work. INCORRECT.

(D) are counted to be one of the best examples of commercial success
PRONOUN NUMBER AGREEMENT ERROR for a singular commercially successful work. Here, as per my understanding, the usage of ONE OF THE BEST EXAMPLES is making sense.
COMMERCIAL should be replaced with COMMERCIALLY. As an adjective cannot modify another adjective. So, the construction 'commercial success work' is incorrect.


(E) is counted as one of the best example of commercial success
Meaning error similar to choice C.
COMMERCIAL should be replaced with COMMERCIALLY. As an adjective cannot modify another adjective. So, the construction 'commercial success work' is incorrect.

Yeah, I have grown to like this.
Also, If you don't mind me hijacking this post, During my exam I saw a "this" all by itself in the non-underlined part.
I don't remember the question exactly but It was like "this suggests that ..". As per my understanding and manhattan SC, "this, these, that, those", when they are used as pronouns, they can't exist by themselves and need to be used as "this finding suggests that" or "this observation suggests that".

what do you think?

I see that your finding is odd, too. Many said that GMAC consider the structure that use "this" as a pronoun ambiguous. Did you see those questions in SC section or in CR and RC?

In SC, and in the non-underlined part

I think I've also seen something like that before. Appears to be very rare on the GMAT, but not impossible. In the explanations, they tend to say that such usage leads to lack of clarity, which is not really absolutely wrong.

Hey,
"Stranger things" is the name of a TV Series.
The two words combined form a singular subject.
You can know this because AjiteshArun has put "Stranger Things" in Italics.
