I will chose B.

as clause starts in present tense, to maintain tense, remove A, C, D.

Guess difficulties here may be inappropriate as we are talking about ONLY difficulty in "homing". I skipped E for this.

B it is!
My reasoning:
there is no supporting evidence of varying levels of difficulty, so the options with "increasing" are out. The difficulty part refers to a single action - that of homing. So, the options with difficulties are also out. I was left with B, even though the usage of verbs there reads a little odd at first.
