not in X but in Y. So B & E out.

C is wrong because it says marine world it self has emotional overtones

D is wrong because which refers to scenes of life and death and that means that scenes themselves have emotional overtones and not the depiction. Also, D moves scenes of L & D away from depiction making it awkward

A remains.

C. "whose" clearly references "depiction".

Does "emotional overtones" in A not seem to refer to "marine life"?
