E for me as well.

A and B are out because they use "they" for a coyote.

C goes for "when to be able"

D goes for "as being a supreme adapter"

"when" is a subordinating conjunction and thus calls for any Clause.
(E) correctly introduces adverbial clause "when the ability..." which is modifying the verb of the mail clause (established).

(C) lacks in introducing any clause.
