I misunderstood the subject as 'discolored layer of varnish'.
Its no doubt that they are correct and hence only option left is C.

What "They" is referring to? No antecedent for "they"
They can not refer to colors.
Color can't be allowed to do something, it is a person who is allowed to do xyz.

We need a subject for the sentence to make sense .
Here C is the correct choice
A we need verb
B it can not refer to researchers as they are humans
C correct
D when is wrong as it is used to show time
E same as D and it is wrong .
