The Namib Desert along the southwest coast of Southern Africa, and where the cold Antarctic Ocean currents create a steady thermal inversion, is one of the driest regions on earth.

(A) and where the cold Antarctic Ocean currents create -- The modifier clause starting with 'where' cannot be joined with fanboys.
(B) and where the cold currents of the Antarctic Ocean creates - the same case as in A; in addition 'currents of the Antarctic Ocean creates' is an SV error.
(C) where the cold Antarctic Ocean currents has created ---- 'Ocean currents has created' is an SV error.

(D) and an area where the cold Antarctic Ocean currents create - A modifier cannot be joined with its noun by fanboys

(E) an area where the cold Antarctic Ocean currents create -- Error free and the best.
