In choice A researchers are modified by the phrase before it so it is wrong

Same is true for B, C,

Researcheres have determined is correnct start at it clearly identifies the main subject and verb

In terms of D and E, in D them is unclear in last clause, whether it refers to researchers or leopards

Thus E is best

I see something wrong in all the choices.

In 'their natural habitat' in E, how do we know whether their refers to the leopards or researchers

E for me.

Felt that another reason why C is not correct: It's in passive voice. In GMAT, active voice is a better option.

"Their" in E in my view, clearly refers to the leopards as indicated by the immediate sentence after the comma.
