B. a disorder most scientists agree to be caused by our immune system in responding to the invading pathogen

I can't bet if they are rock solid rules to eliminate B, but this was how i vetoed the option:
First, "agree to be" does not seem right.
Second , the cause is not the "immune system" but the "response" generated from the immune system
Third, "our immune system in responding to the invading pathogen" as a whole looks wordy and not-much-concise.
Fourth, "caused by" is equivalent to "due to", so in B if you replace the "caused by" with "due to", the resulting sentence would be a mess.

Hope it helps! :thumbup:

A. a disorder most scientists agree that is caused by response to the invading pathogen by our immune system(between A and E i choose E as it is concise and clear in meaning in A there is a confusion in meaning of pathogen by our immune system )

B. a disorder most scientists agree to be caused by our immune system in responding to the invading pathogen(in responding to is not acorrect replacement of in response to )

C. which most scientists agree on as a disorder caused by our immune system which responds to invading pathogens(change of meaning) scientist don't agree on disease as disorder but as it is caused by ........
D. which most scientists agree to be disorder caused by invading pathogens being responded to by our immune system(change of meaning)

E. a disorder that most scientists agree is caused by our immune system’s response to the invading pathogen
