It should boil down to A vs E.

E is incorrect because the "it" at the last can't refer back to "one" of the ways. The only possible is "ways" but that would not make much sense either. So A it is

Imo A

1) Split 1 - Subject verb error. Subject is fewer ways plural but the verb is plural are.
2) Less vs fewer -We can count number of ways i.e 1 way,2 ways, etc.
B,C and D are out.

E - we have a pronoun at the end it, so what soes it refers to? We have a subject that is plural so certainly it should refer to ways. Them would have been fine but it "it " is no good. hence out.

A is the answer
