A, B and C.

I'm pretty good at visualizing scenes while reading. If its something easily relatable, such as modern day urban or suburban settings, I could use my own experiences to visualize the scenes. For other settings, I use certain films as references. Lord of the Rings for fantasy, Star Wars for science fiction, Saving Private Ryan for warfare, etc. I usually envision scenes from a third person perspective (as in video games).

However, for certain series (such as Haruki Murakami's stories), I use a first-person perspective. In those stories, there were many times where I would spend 5 to 30 minutes visualizing a single scene or even a page. I would think about what my posture would be, the scents present, temperature, humidity, lighting, attire, etc. For scenes that involve multiple characters, I often use the likeness of people I know.

Probably D. I tend to read fast and sometimes miss some things. I get very attached to characters in a story but sometimes miss what is going on.

I wouldn't feel all that bad. I still love reading. Besides I'm half convinced you're all lying to me and you don't actually see these vivid images in your mind.

E. I like to act out all of the characters in my head such as trying out different intonations for their voices while injecting the characters' emotions and thought patterns as I read the dialogue. It's a lot of fun especially when there's a sarcastic or really smug character or when there's a quiet, calculating type. I also like to visualize what's happening most of the time.

I can't see any vivid images when I read.

Am I the only person who would read any book or manga in the voice of a certain popular or well-known character or voice actor? I remember reading Happy Happy Clover and I imagined Stephanie Sheh's Mikuru voice when I read Mallow's lines.
