The correct idiomatic usage of differentiate is -

differentiate X from Y

Except (B) no other option is correct..

In the below split:

ways to differentiate between a shawl woven by a hill tribe from that woven by a plains tribe
ways to differentiate between a shawl woven by a hill tribe and that of a plains tribe

ways of differentiating between a shawl woven by a hill tribe and a plains tribe
ways of differentiating a shawl woven by a hill tribe from that woven by a plains tribe,
ways of differentiating a shawl woven by a hill tribe from the ones woven by the plains tribe
.
differentiating between is incorrect usagde in this context as you can only mention " differentiating X from Y". Therefore the only 2 options are the ones with "a shawl woven" after the words "ways of differentiating". Between these 2 there is a comparison error in option E where it compares the singular "a shawl" to plural "the ones". Hence eliminate that option.
.
you are left with only option B which is the correct answer.!

Here we have to ....differentiate X from Y OR differentiate between X and Y (X and Y have to be parallel)

1. ...between a shawl woven by......and a plains tribe... - not parallel.
2. CORRECT
3. ...between X from Y... - incorrect conjunction construction
4. The ‘between x and Y’ is a correct structure, the choice changes the intended meaning of the sentence. Shawl woven' is compared to 'shawl of'
5. While ‘that’ in choice B refers to the noun ‘shawl’, the words ‘the ones’ in choice E only makes the choice wordy.
