IMO answer is A .

A. with pronunciations given --> Short and sweet.
B. that has pronunciations given --> Awkward construction
C. with pronunciations’ given --> Possesssive error.
D. that have pronunciations given ---> Subject is singular but have is plural
E. that do have pronunciations given --> same error as D.

It is wordier compared to A. There seems to be no need for "that has" when a simple with will suffice.

I chose Right answer only, but my question is can I use that(singular) with dictionaries (plural)? If not than only two options left and c is clearly not right.. answer is A.

I think B is wrong because of redundancy and passive voice. Looking to hear other's opinions on the matter.

B. that has [some things] given

"that has" accomplishes the same thing as "given", and the structure is passive.
B would be right is "given" was not in the sentence.

A. with [some things] given

More concise than B.

One way to use that is with a noun after it:

1. That person but not that persons
2. That question but not that questions

This kind of that can be used only with singular nouns, and its plural form is those:
3. Those people but not those person
4. Those questions but not those question

However, when that is used to refer to a noun before it, there is no such restriction (and those cannot be used):
5. A question that is...
6. Questions that are...

Official Explanation

This is the most economical wording of the modifying prepositional phrase. “That has” (B) is unwieldy and superfluous. The plural “pronunciations” is not possessive and thus should not have an apostrophe (C). “Have” [(D), (E)] is plural, disagreeing with the singular subject.

Answer: A
