(B) 'which time they should become active' sounds awkward
(C) 'tells' Incorrect S-V
(D) 'tells' Incorrect S-V
(E) Doesn't maintain parallelism

1.In ETS we use"both....and..." not "both......or...." so delete B,C,D
2. In choice C,D "tell" must be pl. verb which modify "the substances"
3.Biologists believe that they have found ---present perfect. but in choic D "will tell an individual"--future so it is not parallel tense, thus making sentence awkward.
