The royal procession from Buckingham Palace to St. Paul's cathedral, held on June 22, 1897 as part of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee celebration, was met by crowds with waving flags, cheering, and singing.

The main subject of the sentence is "The royal procession" and the main verb is "was met" which is the passive voice (Logically appropriate).
From skimming all the answer choices, the issue here is the modifier after crowds. Let take a look at each choices

A. was met by crowds with waving flags, cheering, and singing --> Not parallel "flags, cheering, singing"

B. was met by crowds with waving flags, cheers, and songs --> Parallel but awkward meaning "crowds with cheers?" "crowds with songs?"

C. was met by crowds waving flags, cheering, and singing --> nothing wrong here. waving, cheering, singing modify crowds

D. met with crowds who waved flags, cheered, and sang --> So weird! The royal procession met with someone?!

E. was met with by flag-waving, cheering and singing crowds --> with by is totally wrong.
