B isn't correct because its seems to be saying the shark's jaws are ready to slide into postion.

D just doesn't make sense. 'The' shouldn't be the start.

C is wrong because 'each' is singular and 'are' shouldn't be used in 'each one of which are'

E is correct (I think).

A,B -> suggests the spare tooth only start appearing in the reserves when the active tooth is gone.

C -> 'are' is wrong

D -> 'the many spare teeth' sounds awkward.

I'll take E
