Answer is B

Redundancy: C,D,E has a redundant "is" (The redundant sentence is like: The most read magazine is America is National Geographic...)

Wrong comma: reading the meaning of A, one feels that the two clauses are not connected.

Did you typed the problem correctly ?
None of them is correct with "is America......" I think the correct one should have "in America......".

Is it correct to use whose for an object? I may be wrong, but I based my response (E) on the fact that whose is not appropriate with nouns other than persons.

You're thinking about who. :)

Whose is not restricted to living things, and can refer to inanimate objects as well. For example:

The question, whose difficulty level is not known...
The car whose tires need to be replaced...
