is "metamorphosised" a typo?
I'll take B and explain if it's right. Give it some time for others to answer too

You need "that" to connect the sentence, so (D) is out.
"but" in (C) changes the meaning of sentence, as we need to have sense of continuty here(Universe started ..... and has [over the period of time] metamorphesed into .......)
This sense is clear only in (B) and (E) ((A) having begun is wrong) i think in first sentence we need simple past tense to make the relation.
Between (B) and (E), (Again in (E) i think we need simple past) so (B) is best IMO.

I thought metamorphosised was a typo. Otherwise B would have been good. I don't believe this question is representative of the GMAT verbal

Apart from the typo thing, A and B are equally correct.
