One can see that A, C and D are using "every year + comma + subordinate clause + main clause" this every year is first of all too far from the main clause. the main theme of the sentence is "hundreds of x are killed every day. A, C and D are out...every year and annually convey the same meaning so using both in the sentence is redundant...A and D have this main issue
E is also out as its using "Annually +comma" this annually must be used with main clause.
B is perfect "Subordinate clause + main clause"

A. Every year, because the horn of either the black or white species can fetch a large sum on the illegal market, hundreds of African rhinoceros are killed annually ---- every year—annually redundant

B. Because the horn of either the black or white species can fetch a large sum on the illegal market, hundreds of African rhinoceros are killed every year – ok

C. Every year, because the horn of either the black and white species can fetch a large sum on the illegal market, hundreds of African rhinoceros are killed --- ‘either – and’ is unidiomatic

D. Every year, hundreds of African rhinoceros are killed annually because the horn of either the black or white species can fetch a large sum on the illegal market – ‘every year—annually’ redundant

E. Annually, because the horn of either the black or white species can fetch a large sum on the illegal market, a hundred African rhinoceros are killed – as if exactly a hundred African rhinoceros are killed -- Altered meaning

Sir , 'Every Year or Annually' too far from main clause ' Hundreds of African...' ..... is it an error?
