compare to Vs compare with - compare with wins

C&D are out.
B - being, out

between A & E - I dont see glaring issues (expect for "are", but I'm not sure), however, E looks more wordy...so, I'll go with A

The subjunctive mood introduced by "that the chromosomes..." needs
a verb form "be compared". Also, we have to use "compared with"
here since the objects being compared are similar.

B, C, D and E use incorrect "are compared", "to be compared" etc.

B,C, D go with "being" which renders them incorrect. E is wordy, so it's A.
