Thanks for sharing the question.

I went with (B), the way I see it, removing the coma clarifies the meaning. With the coma, it would seem as if the "conflicts" did the "rebounding", however, it was the "tiger population" who did the rebounding.

Hence, (A) and (D) are eliminated.

C. the conflict with humans arose precisely in the handful places where the endangered Bengal tigers population had rebounded because of careful conservation efforts. The "S" in tigers made me eliminate this.

E. conflicts of humans with tigers arose precisely in the handful of places where the endangered Bengal tigers have rebounded because of a careful conservation effort. "Because of a" made me eliminate this.

Thus, (B).

E. conflicts of humans with tigers arose precisely in the handful of places where the endangered Bengal tigers have rebounded because of a careful conservation effort.

I went with E....

First I chose B, but then I thought - "Conflicts of humans with tigers" is more clear than Option B....

I went with B, as it was giving the intended meaning correctly and was grammatically correct and logical.
