I think its B.

Coz "as a result of " is a idiomtic phrase.

a) because, resulting from intensive inbreeding generations ago, - because/resulting redundant.
b) because, as a result of intensive inbreeding generations ago, - because, as a result redundant.
c) because they inbred intensively generations ago so that "so" is redundant.
d) because there was intensive inbreeding generations ago and
e) as a result of their intensive inbreeding generations ago, and

Here is how I thought

A, B & C - Eliminate - They have redundant words

left with D & E
E uses the correct idiom - as a result of X and Y
