I think Answer B is also not right.

There are obvious errors in A ("found" should be "is found"), C (change meaning), D ("being" is not right) and E ("are" should be "is).

B can be shorten in the form of "The wandering albatross is ... and that is ...". You need a comma before "and". Two independent clause cant just be joined by "and".

IMO: B
B is the best choice. The correct answer should be " and is found primarily in the seas around Antarctica".
This however, is not listed.
That in B is not needed though.
