A. nevertheless this condition, which occurs when the population of a certain environment has grown to such a large degree that the environment cannot support the inhabitants
"Although...nevertheless", two subordinators in 1 sentence signals redundancy.
B. this condition, which occurs when the population of a certain environment has grown to such a large degree that the environment cannot support the inhabitants
"to such a large degree" is a wordier way to say "so much". Between option B & E, choose E.
C. these conditions, which occur when the population of a certain environment has grown so much that the environment cannot support the inhabitants
Non underlined part towards the closing of sentence starts with "is seen also" which signals that there is only 1 "condition", hence using "these conditions" is wrong.
D. nevertheless this condition, which occurs when the population of a certain environment has grown so much that the environment cannot support the inhabitants
"Although...nevertheless", two subordinators in 1 sentence signals redundancy.
E. this condition, which occurs when the population of a certain environment has grown so much that the environment cannot support the inhabitants
