I think it id D.

This is because the words "they sometimes lose money with a rise in short term rates" is one clause and the conjunction "and" joins it with the rest of the sentence.

When is required. A, B , C remain

In A : "there is a rise " is the right usage
In C : Wordy, sentence should indicate that banks are not able to raise.

We need 'when' to indicate the time the short term rates rise. D,E --> out
A,C have awkward and lengthy phrasing.

B is the best choice.
