C is my man.

(A) sounds like the theory itself is "returning to the water" :lol:
(B) awkward
(C) ANSWER
(D) "and that they later" is redundant
(E) "after evolved into" is wrong

*I didn't mention all the errors/awkwardness in the answer choices given...perhaps there are better reasons as to why they are not answers.

Hmmm...?
Is it? :(

B sounded as if it needed "that" somewhere...

plus, separation by commas created a fragment/run-on sentence?

I agree B definitely need a that

C changes the meaning as well.

If B is the ans it need to have a that after the appositive

Agreed. kumarajeet06, did you miss "that" in the answer choice B?

a. supporting the theory of land mammals returning to the water that later --IMO, this "that" refers to "theory" more than "mammals".
b. supporting the theory of land mammals, after returning to the water,--if delete the red part, the sentence obeviouly wrong.
c. that supports the theory of land mammals that returned to the water and that later--Correct.
d. in support of the theory that land mammals that returned to the water and that they later--redundancy and ambiguousness. Does "they" refer to "fossils"?
e.of support for the theory of land mammals that returned to the water and after--modifier problem. Sounds like that "after evolving, mammals finally returned to the water", however, reverses the original meaning..
