among each other is wrong as among is used for 2+ and each other is strictly used for 2.

themselves is wrong in A . S-V agreement

E uses interacting. No need for progressive tense/modifier

C is parallel and clear

Moreover, "interact with" is also an idiom. Hence, C.

A,B,C - WRONG USAGE OF 'WHO'.
EXAMPLE:THE "X" ARMY,WHO IS CAPABLE... - WRONG


IMO E

I think that who refers here to the tribe members. Usage of who in C is correct

IMO C

C.
E is interestingly incorrect. The use of the word "among" should be followed by "themselves" and not "one another" or "each other".

i think it's C.
we could use "among" if we were talking about all thribes as one whole entity. in this case the tribes are considered as individual parts of a group of tribes, therefore we can not use "among" . i believe you can use "who" because a tribe consists of people
