D. Smokers needs to be plural to match the pronoun their and for some reason needs to be used instead of somehow because we know how just not the reason why.

D is more concise. We don't really need to say "many of the smokers" because saying "many smokers" is clear already and shorter. E ist a grammatically correct sentence, but we want to choose the best answer overall, which is D.

In D, should it be "for some reasons" instead of "for some reason"

A. for reason came as a surprise to the smoker- smoker must be smokers as the sentence discusses in general about smokers
B. somehow came as a surprise to the smoker - somehow refers to "in some way; by some means" however the sentence intends to show a surprise faced by the smokers, therefore some reason(conveys that one does not know the reason for a particular situation, often with the implication that one finds it strange or surprising) is correct usage
C. for some reason was surprising to a smoker- smoker must be smokers as the sentence discusses in general about smokers
D. for some reason came as a surprise to many smokers- Bingo!
E. somehow came as a surprise to many of the smokers- somehow refers to "in some way; by some means" however the sentence intends to show a surprise faced by the smokers, therefore some reason(conveys that one does not know the reason for a particular situation, often with the implication that one finds it strange or surprising) is correct usage
