D for me as well ; IMO - E is not worded properly.

Can someone suggest is this is a valid construction ?

down to D & E...

in E "appear" sounds strange, given I think the subject is singular. ONE BIG dinasour...

D is correct..

D. paleontologists have found huge fossil bones from what appears to be
E. paleontologists have found huge fossil bones, which are from what appear to be

the subject of "digging" is the paleontologists, thus the main subject of the sentence must be " paleontologists" . A, B and C are out!
D is less wordy than E. I choose D.
