E: We're talking about lizards, plural, so we need a matching verb. This eliminates A and B. Finally, I feel that the word interaction implies the word "between" so including it is redundant. E is clear and concise.

Between D and E, E is my choice. For D, between ---------- with ----- is not idiomatic.

We start with the last part of the sentence - and observe there is a comparison between stimuli and hormones

So knock off all answer choices with wrong usage of between
A,C,D go off

Between B & E.
E is better - Notice the first part of sentence is plural there fore we need plural for comparison.
