A - "comes" is wrong
B - "comes" is wrong
C & E - wrong ( "that are also found" sounds better than "also found" )
D - Best Fit

what is the grammatical reason ??

I picked E because I thought "they " was referring to "antioxidants".

GMAT Prep question, OA is D.
A is incorrect:
1. comes should be come
2. compounds *that* are also found....and that ....is the correct construction.
B is incorrect:
1. comes should be come
2. they doesnt have a clear referent
C is incorrect:
compounds ....and Vitamin C , and inhibit the formation is incorrect - inhibit is not tied to compounds in any way( inhibits is a function of the compound and thus must be linked to it).
D is correct
E they does not have a clear referent.

D is correct because it is both gramatically (most of plural.. come) and stylistically (that... that II-ism)

D here, for all the reasons listed above, come agrees with most, and 'that' describes the ||ism
