Why not b?

It is definitely not B because THEY in B is not clear - canaries whose neurons increase when they

Whether THEY refers to canaries or neurons.

'They' in B is very ambiguous.

E is the clearest and the most concise one.

Why not b?

A is unclear
B - the production of new brain cells, include mice whose brains - need to talk about brain changes , this phrase alters the sense.
C - unclear reference (that and they)
D - says the brain growth when placed in simulationg env and increase in canaries without simulating env -- altered meaning.
E - explains the effects of mice's brain when placed in simulating env

They is NOT ambiguous at all - and remember that certain levels of pronoun ambiguity is allowed on the GMAT.

However, the problem with option B is that the word "include" must introduce examples, and mice (or canaries) are not examples of brain development.
