"being" is fine as long as it is not at the end of the underlined portion of the answer choices.

If the answer starts with "because ", then the later part should be in the active voice or something like "it is not likely that those plants" etc etc

The "it" in C is incorrect.
Again, the "it" in E is incorrect.

Answer D
