According to most evolutionary theories, a "successful" individual must have some structure or perform some activity to ensure the next generation will contain creatures more like themselves than like others of the species.

(A) to ensure the next generation will contain creatures more like themselves than like others of the species. -[that is missing after ensure, themselves??]
(B) to ensure creatures more like itself than like others of its species will be contained in the next generation - to ensure that, will be contained - passive
(C) ensuring that the next generation contain creatures more like itself than others of its species. - contains
(D) that ensures the next generation contains creatures more like themselves than others of the species. - themselves?
(E) that ensures that the next generation contains creatures more like itself than like others of its species. - correct (ensures that.. + individual:itself)

what is ensured? -> "that" the next generation.... not the next generation

clear E for me
