C is wrong in tense. The non-underlined part is the past simple tense with "were established". So, the tense after that also agree in past. Only "would" and "must" are acceptable. Base on the meaning, "ensure" make sense to report the future tense rather than simple tense. In past, future tense will become hypothetical. "would" is okay

Note, never combine "present tense" with "hypothetical would" or "past tense" with "future will". This is rule.

There are multiple splits to eliminate answer choices.

"must" is redundant as we have the verb "ensure."

1. "established to ensure that P and Q" - P & Q should be parallel. Eliminate A, B, D.

"evaluate the experiment before it was conducted."
Would is used when a sentence talks about the future in past tense.
"Was" at the end of the sentence suggests that the sentence is speaking in past tense rather than the present.
Eliminate C.

E is correct.

There are often more prominent splits than idioms.
"Warned of" is more formal than "warned about"
