(A) associated with other calves, they will require less medication and gain weight quicker than do
==> associated is not parallel to "exercise"
(B) associated with other calves, they require less medication and gain weight quicker than
==> associated is not parallel to "exercise"
(C) associate with other calves, they required less medication and will gain weight quicker than do
==> "required" and "will gain" is not parallel
(D) associate with other calves, they have required less medication and will gain weight more quickly than do
==> "have required" and "will gain" is not parallel
(E) associate with other calves, they require less medication and gain weight more quickly than
==> exercise is parallel to associate and "require" is parallel to "gain".
Please provide explanations with answer.

Well wanted to post the explanation but gurpreet's post says it all and is enough to understand that it's a parallelism and verb/tense agreement problem.
Kudos for gurpreet

Prob with A,B,C is gain weight quicker

should have a ADV instead of ADJ.

in D quickly than do is wrong

its E

(A) associated with other calves, they will require less medication and gain weight quicker than do------exercise and associated is wrong tense combo

(B) associated with other calves, they require less medication and gain weight quicker than --- same as A.

(C) associate with other calves, they required less medication and will gain weight quicker than do ---- They required --- wrong past tense in combination with the future tense -will gain-

(D) associate with other calves, they have required less medication and will gain weight more quickly than do ----- have required and will gain --- wrong tense combination

(E) associate with other calves, they require less medication and gain weight more quickly than ---- perfect tensing; correct choice

Let's understand the meaning of the sentence. It talks about some facts, using if-then to present conditions.

A study
commissioned by the Department of Agriculture (noun modifier that modifies a study)
(this is the verb for a study) showed that
(new clause->if-then situation) if calves exercise and associated with other calves,
(then clause) they will require less medication and gain weight quicker than do those raised in confinement.

Error analysis:
we have 2 verbs not parallel to each other exercise and associated. Both verbs must be in present simple, because then clause has "will require" verb, which is as well incorrect to present facts.
Comparison error -> X gain quicker than Y. X and Y are not parallel.
Future simple used to present general fact.

(A) associated with other calves, they will require less medication and gain weight quicker than do
(B) associated with other calves, they require less medication and gain weight quicker than
(C) associate with other calves, they required less medication and will gain weight quicker than do
(D) associate with other calves, they have required less medication and will gain weight more quickly than do
(E) associate with other calves, they require less medication and gain weight more quickly than
