E.

"excellent animals" in underlined portion should match with "Green anole lizards" in number. A,B,C out.

D uses idiom interaction between X with Y.
E uses correctly interaction of X and Y.

I see no point in writing my explanation here, since duttsit's explanation is perfect.

E is good.
Its a classical Subject-verb error. "Lizards" is plural and must be plural for the entire sentence. That will leave us with "D" and "E".
D is wrong since "betwee x with y" is not idiomatic.

I'm not sure if there's typing mistake with E, but it sounds awkward:

Green anole lizards, familiar to schoolchildren as chameleons, have recently become familiar to biologists excellent animals for laboratory studies of the interaction of stimuli and hormones.

there's "as" between " biologists" and " excellent" .
E is perfect, refer to duttsit's explanation.

The 'as' refers to the chameleons and I believe cannot be used for 'excellent animals' since there are commas seperating those sentences. 'become familiar to biologist excellent animals' doesn't sound right.

E may not be a perfect sentence, but it sure is the lesser of the five evils.
