In my opinion the correct option is B because:-
'that flowed' is correct
'who' properly modifies Apache Tribes
'displacing them' properly uses the cause and effect relationship.

Please correct me if I am wrong

A) flowing through their reservations arrived too late for the Apache tribes living in New Mexico, who had already been displaced

A seems fine to me.
It correctly identifies sequence of events.
1. Apache tribes got displaced --- hence past perfect-had is used. (to indicate 1st of sequential events)
2. Later Mandates arrived --- 2nd event. So simple past is used

Hence A and E fits to correct verb form. but 'which' is not modifying mandates in E.
So A should be the answer.

Thanks!
