in b,
insecticides have spread thoussand of miles from their orriginal use

is not logic.
from should be follow by a place, where, not by an abstract noun like "use". using our common sense of this world, we realize the illogicness.

Is it always necessary that 'that' comes after verb 'shows' ?

I know that 'that' should come after reporting verbs but like in this sentence is it necessary ?

Analysis of tree bark showed something about chemical insecticides. It did not show 'chemical insecticides'. C, D and E are out.

From A and B

A. that chemical insecticides have often spread thousands of miles from where they were originally used. Correct choice

B. that chemical insecticides have spread, often thousands of miles from their original use.'have spread, often' has different meaning from 'have often spread'

An analysis of tree bark all over the globe shows that chemical insecticides have often spread thousands of miles from where they were originally used.

Issues: Modifier | Meaning

Analysis:
1. First split is around "globe shows that chemical.." vs "globe shows chemical..". Without "that", the second version becomes a fragment, eliminating (C), (D) and (E).
2. Between (A) and (B), (B) has issues as highlighted below


A. that chemical insecticides have often spread thousands of miles from where they were originally used

B. that chemical insecticides have spread, often thousands of miles from their original use
- "their original use" is not a place and saying thousands of miles from their original use is illogical.

C. chemical insecticides, having often spread thousands of miles from where they were used originally - fragment

D. chemical insecticides, often spreading thousands of miles from where their original use - fragment

E. chemical insecticides, often spreading thousands of miles from where they were originally used - fragment

Answer: A
