It needs to be B...

Lot of people will say it is outgrowths, but hey.... I will stick with B.

A. but which was in fact a natural outgrowth of it
- wrong verb was, need were...
B. but which were in fact a natural outgrowth of it
- this is correct
C. but which were in fact a natural outgrowths of it
- is wrong too. outgrowths is wrong...
D. but it was in fact a natural outgrowth of them
- wrong pronoun it to refer to compound subject...
E. which was in fact a natural outgrowth of it
- again wrong verb was, need were...
