A gives the best combination of 'when' and 'the turtles become...' rather than using the participles in the other options.

Going with the first split - When/with/due to/because/as a result..
... that [modifier], the turtles become...

B,C and E signifies that the turtles are with the fall weather turning cold.. or turtles are due to the fall weather turning cold.. same with "as a result" - eliminate B,C and E.

Going with the last split - dips/dipping : "dips" is a verb, while "dipping" is a participle, so what we need ? If we use "because" we need a clause to follow it, so eliminate D. In A, "dips" make what follows the "when" a clause - select A.

Cheers !!

B,C,D are the gmat patterns signaling that the option is wrong.
E is awkward and passive.

i do not know why b is wrong.
with+noun+doing can show the context of main clause. so, why b is wrong?

b is wrong because with+noun+doing show a context of main action. this context gramatically exist before main action. so, the pattern is not correct to show the meaning of simultaneousness of two actions. when is logically used to show the simultaneousness.
