Option B is the right answer; together is plural and need ‘provide’ and ‘include’. Subject verb agreement.

Additives such as 'together' 'with' ' as well as' etc. do not render the subject plural. Plural noun 'provide' is out. Between D and E, we cannot join a modifier using a conjunction 'and' with an IC as in D. E is the correct one.

(A) ((provide)) 165 square nautical miles of marine life for underwater explorers, ((which)) includes

(B) ((provide)) for underwater explorers 165 square nautical miles of marine life, ((which)) ((include))

(C) ((provide)) 165 square nautical miles of marine life for underwater explorers and ((includes))

One thing to know here is that, whenever we use together with X, Y .......is always followed by a singular noun, if the Y is in singular form. The verb must agree with the nearest noun Y. Thus, here, "provide" is wrong. So, A, B, C is directly eliminated.

Coming to D and E,

(D) //provides// 165 square nautical miles of marine life for underwater explorers ((and including)) - unparallel. Leads to the sentence becoming a single fragment.

(E) //provides// underwater explorers with //165 square nautical miles of marine life//, //including// - brings out the true meaning and is grammatically correct.

Thus, E is best.
