My Strategy to choose options C :

Each is singular , cannot go with "them".
Again , since Each is singular , it needs a singular verb "has" hence option C.

I did not read the full sentence , pls let me know whether my reasoning is correct or has some fault?

Thanks

Choice A has two errors..
1) modifier issue..
Each of them ' can start an independent clause but cannot join two independent clauses.. so now you have two clauses joined by COMMA
C changes to ' each of which', which is correct.
2) placement of modifier ' located at top' and ' called the taste pore'..
It is illogical " top of the taste bud called the taste pore".
By getting called the taste pore' next to opening, it clears the meaning.

Run-on sentence as given in error 1 is the main reason you should not touch this choice, even if you overlook meaning issue.
