It is A. Rest has very obvious errors or that distorts the meaning.

B,C,D obviously wrong,

I am caught between A and E.

I discard A because of the incorrect idiom. However by itself is used for contrast.

E seems correct,

The focus of E is determination.
No matter how have scientists determined...

The theme is not "different ways of determining", rather it is "different ways determined".
So E modifies the original intent.

Buff, I thought about this. While it is true that "however" is used for contrast, "however" can be used for different meaning as well.

For example:

However he did it, it was very clever.

In the sentence above, "however" means "whatever way".
