A & C out for incorrect use of which

D & E out as both do not form a sentence without the dependent clause

Hence B

"and" is required else the sentence becomes run-on sentence.

(B)

Another B.

What does "which" refer to in the original sentence? Hence, options with "which" are out. Moreover, the second part of the sentence is not a dependent clause and hence a conjunction is required. Option B provides this.

A C and E are ambiguous. They don't clearly tell us whether they are referring to the Coast or the number, thus, cross them out.

B and D left

That can not be used with comma ","

SO, B is my choice, "and" is necessary to maintain the structure and the meaning of the sentence.
