1. "Which" in A and C refers to "The capacity of embryonic stem cells to develop into most types of human tissue" - it is not GMAT style.
2. Moreover. There is no full verb in this part of the sentence before "but". So even without "1" these options go out.
3. In D same problem as in A, C. Look at "2". We have "making", but do not have full verb. Out.
4. "The capacity" is singular. So C (again) and E are out.

So it is B. Singular, "makes" - normal verb.

THE CAPACITY OF CELLS( TO DO SOMETHING) MAKES THEM VALUABLE

A. tissue, which makes them ...no main verb of the subject ' the capacity'
B. tissue makes them...CORRECT
C. tissues, which make them...no main verb of the subject ' the capacity'
D. tissue, making them...no main verb of the subject ' the capacity'
E. tissue make it..should be MAKES because the subject 'the capacity' is singular
