Can we not rule out the option e because there is no clear subject of verb "had been attacked"?
The reason I ask this is because if we consider "they" as the subject, then there are 2 verbs and they are not properly connected.

The first detailed study into magpie attacks has found that a staggering 98 per cent of men and 75 per cent of women born in the country are likely to have been attacked by the birds by the time they reach adulthood.

by the time +present simple must go with 'will have done" , not with 'did'. so D is gone
