native to X is the correct Idiom.
in an attempt to X is the correct Idiom.

A use both these correctly and is the correct answer

Choices D and E could be ignored because of the usage of past perfect tense unnecessarily and wrong use of these idioms.

native to in A............. and natives of D, both, are correct forms of idioms.

but another idiom => .... attempt to control in A is prefered over .......attempt at controlling in D.

"A".

Point to note that "native of" is correct idiom when talking abt a person and "native to" is correct when talking abt plants, animals etc.
