because simply gives a reason.

in that shows contrast. Teratomas is a unusual C in that xyz

Between D & E, E remains as D introduces a dependent clause that refers to the whole composition as tissues such as bone and tooth

agree with E.

Though "because" is concise than "in that" this particular sentence needs
"in that" .

IMO E. Firstly, we have "such as" vs "like". We have an example, so "such as" is the correct option. Remain A, D and E. Secondly, because vs in that. I will chose "in that" . I think because needs a causality, but we don't have such a causality, so i will chose "in that". Only D and E remain. For me, E keeps the original meaning of the sentence.

The Sentence is trying to show Teratomas are unusual in WHAT way.

so we go for "Teratomas are unusual forms of cancer in that...."

Anyway, Please read the alternate explanation here. It is amazingly clear. Its one of my bookmarks
