(A) each of which specialise in a particular business area The singular each does not agree with the plural specialize.

(B) which specialises in particular business areas In this case the subject is the plural divisions which does not agree with the singular
specializes.

(C) they specialise in a particular business area each This is a run-on sentence because the part after the comma is an independent clause.

(D) all of them specialise in a particular business area This too is a run-on sentence.

(E) each of which specialises in a particular business area
The correct answer.

Hey GKomoku

The company has three divisions (this is an independent clause)
each of which specialise in a particular business area (this acts as a modifier. It modifies three divisions of the company) This part is not an independent clause

God is within 15 seconds by using POE
We need the word specialises because divisions is a plural.
Thus, we reject A C D
.
.
Next,
Since we are talking about 3 divisions here we need to modify all the 3 with the word each. Thus reject one of the remaining option B.

IMO-E

Kudos for appreciation please.
Thanks in advance
