Australian embryologists have found evidence that suggests that the elephant is descended from an aquatic animal, and its trunk originally evolved as a kind of snorkel.
A. that suggests that the elephant is descended from an aquatic animal, and its trunk originally evolved
B. that has suggested the elephant descended from an aquatic animal, its trunk originally evolving
C. suggesting that the elephant had descended from an aquatic animal with its trunk originally evolving
D. to suggest that the elephant has descended from an aquatic animal and its trunk originally evolved
E. to suggest that the elephant is descended from an aquatic animal and that its trunk originally evolved

Specifically, can someone explain when to use "To Suggest" and "that suggests"?

Will post OA soon...

I am toggling between A, D and E. But E looks more parallel in structure.

In A, evidence that suggests that the elephant......looks awkward.

in D, lacking parallel structure evidence to suggest THAT X and THAT Y. Missing THAT after end.

So I am going with E.

I agree with the parallel structure in option [E], however "is descended" seems wrong to me. Shouldn't it be "has descended". What is OA btw?

E correctly uses the plural "suggest" needed because of the "and" existing further on.
Choice A needs a "that" after the comma and before "its"
