Which of the above sentences are grammatically correct?

Hi, Azz,

The only correct sentence that I see there is (d). You could fix (a), (b), and (c) by changing the "which"-clause to a "for"-phrase, and (e) by changing "will" to "would":

a'. They won the championship, for their fourth time.
b'. They are trying to win the championship, for their fifth time.
c'. They are trying to win the championship, for their fifth time.
e'. They are trying to win the championship, which would be great for them.
