So, there is no grammatical errors or nothing is illogical with E.
the style and usage makes E vulnerable.

By 4999999 A.D, The sun will have become a red giant.

Did you observe the future perfect here?
The same should be used in the sentence too when we use the wording "by the time xxxx in the future".

That's why E is wrong for grammatical reasons.

I choose E at start. But later observed that there are illogical as well as grammatical errors in E.
Illogical: Home to ...., by the time ..., It is as if the by the time .. is modifying the clause they become home to.- It is ambiguous. illogical.
Grammatical reason: As stated above, We require future perfect.

Hope it helps.

+kudos if you like it.
