I believe it should be E.

The intention or meaning of the sentence require 'Because' in place of 'Caused by'

What is OA?

I think it is always preferable to have subject (here ballet dancers and gymnasts) first, if all the other grammatical aspects are correct in sentence.

OA please?

OA: D

D is preferable to E because it has less ambiguity to "they" - they could be referring to habits in E.
