A.B.C can't be eliminated.

I choose E. Paleontologists didn't find the bones from the dinosaur, but the bones are from the dinosaur

D for me as well ; IMO - E is not worded properly.

Can someone suggest is this is a valid construction ?

down to D & E...

in E "appear" sounds strange, given I think the subject is singular. ONE BIG dinasour...

D is correct..

D is best. appears should be the verb of a dinosaur.

the subject of "digging" is the paleontologists, thus the main subject of the sentence must be " paleontologists" . A, B and C are out!
D is less wordy than E. I choose D.
