" Then recognizing a stronger......" the clause in option D and E.
I think one of the reason to eliminate these 2 options is also that this clause does not contain a verb. The participle recognizing should have been recognizes.

Experts pls comment !


No, the participle is alright. This structure is known as subgroup modifier. e.g.,

I have three shirts, each of them having two pockets. ... (the underlined portion is a subgroup modifier.)

D is wrong because of the wrong pronoun "its". E is wrong because of the faulty parallelism between "bond" and "they have to".

Hi I agree C being the best answer among the mentioned answers.
I got a doubt regarding usage of which for Plural noun states . ?
Is it really applicable and apt to use Which instead of them for Plural nouns ?

Help appreciated.

The region of Norden is comprised of five sovereign states, each of which recognize a stronger cultural bond to their Nordic neighbors than to any other cultural grouping.

(A) which recognize a stronger cultural bond to their Nordic neighbors than to - "recognise" refers back to "each", so it should be singular... therefore it should be "recognises"
(B) which recognize a stronger cultural bond with their Nordic neighbors than - same as (A)
(C) which recognizes a stronger cultural bond with its Nordic neighbors than with
(D) them recognizing a stronger cultural bond with its Nordic neighbors than they have with - not parallel
(E) them recognizing a stronger cultural bond to their Nordic neighbors than they have to - parallelism again
