A. meteorologists generally recognize six different factors contributing to cyclone formation
subject is cyclones as modifier at the start modifies that

B. cyclones, meteorologists recognize, form from the contribution of six different factors
passive voice is required here as cyclones are not formed by themselves but by other six factors

C. cyclones form from the contribution of six different factors recognized by meteorologists
same as B . And not only factors are recognized by meteorologists but the whole phenomenon of contribution....

D. cyclones are formed, meteorologists recognize, from the contributions of six different factors
correct with proper verb and modifiers in place.

E. meteorologists are recognizing that cyclones are formed from the contributions of six different factors
same as A

A. meteorologists generally recognize six different factors contributing to cyclone formation (Meteorologists are not called typhoons and so on)
B. cyclones, meteorologists recognize, form from the contribution of six different factors (Cyclones are formed from themselves. So passive verb is required)
C. cyclones form from the contribution of six different factors recognized by meteorologists (Same as B)
D. cyclones are formed, meteorologists recognize, from the contributions of six different factors (Correct)
E. meteorologists are recognizing that cyclones are formed from the contributions of six different factors (Same as A)

Kudos please if you like my explanation.

D seems to be concise. Modifier error only b c D are left. C change of meaning factors recognized by ppl. B wrong ppl didnt recognize the cyclones but how they formed. So d is best.
