Eliminate a and b since 'They' is used although we are addressing 'The coyote'.
Can you please tell the source?

This is a classic S-V agreement question, with a long middle man introduced through the additive "along with". Additives do not make a subject plural.

Split 1 : S-V agreement : Eliminate A and B.
Split 2 : when to be is C out.

D is wordy and can be eliminated over E.

A. they have established themselves as supreme adapters in an era when the capability
B. they have established themselves as being supreme adapters in an era when being able
C. it has established itself as a supreme adapter in an era when to be able
D. it has established itself as being a supreme adapter in an era when its ability
E. it has established itself as a supreme adapter in an era when the ability

taking subject verb agreement into account , A and B can be easily eliminated

D uses being a supreme adapter , which is too wordy

C when to be able to ..adjust is incorrect construction , ability to adjust is correct wording

Correct idiomatic usage of ability is - ability to

None but (E) presents the same...
