B. should be nothing more than parts and energy, a thermodynamic system, and attempt to recreate that system . Sentence uses consider and should together. Incorrect usage
C. as being nothing more than parts and energy, a thermodynamic system, and attempting to recreate that systemAgain wrong idiom consider A as B
D. as if it was nothing more than parts and energy, a thermodynamic system, and attempt to recreate that systemAgain wrong idiom consider A as if B
E. nothing more than parts and energy, a thermodynamic system, and to attempt to recreate that systemCorrect
