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.

The key to understanding how this question functions is to recognize that the underlined portion of the sentence is part of the clause beginning with THAT, and that the correct version must be parallel to the non-underlined portion of that clause, and that clause only. The rest of the sentence is effectively irrelevant.
B). Is correct because it supplies the verb "is" before "found", creating a passive construction which makes the sentence logical. In addition, the word "That" makes this version parallel to the beginning of the clause: that belongs.............that is found.
