All but E have problems.

A - verb problem "its.
B - same as A
C - is close but them seems to indicate tourists instead of the chambers.
D - seems to indicate the tourists were raising the humidity
E - correct

In late 1997, the chambers [inside the pyramid of the Pharaoh Menkaure at Giza ] were closed [to visitors for cleaning and repair ] because moisture [ that was exhaled by tourists] had raised the humidity within them to such levels that salt from the stone was crystallizing and fungus was growing on the walls.
