D

A & B - 'which' does not connect the DC correctly.
C - sounds like the specific to only 'inorganic systems that are still debated .. "

D stands out

Are they debating the inorganic systems or the theory? I say D.

You can not use between.

Only choice left is c and d.
C says, systems still debated among. We could have easily used a restrive clause without using systems as a subject of new clause. And morover, systems can not be debated, subject matters are.

So D is my choice too.

is this sentence correct? i mean is the verb "are" correct? and how the plural "systems" can be refered as "a theory"?

My answer is D.

C changes the meaning of the sentence.
E is a trap. Between is used when you are discussing two objects, persons or things.

D for me

the DC is modifying the 'theory', not 'systems'

A and B are out since 'which' refers to the systems. The sentence thus suggests the debate is about the systems and not the mechanism of life process
C has the same issue as A and B.

Between D and E, D is best since between is used for 2 people. In this case, we can't tell if it's between two people from the word 'biologists'

D for me

Debated by is bettter than "debated between".
Debated among could be correct but D sounds correct.

I go with D.
