"Because" in the options A and B is redundant, since the sentence starts with "The reason". For example - "The reason for X is because Y.... " sounds incorrect. The correct form would be rather "The reason for X is Y". So, A and B are out.

C is out for using "their"

Out of D and E, I'll choose D which is precise and clear.

Can someone explain more in detail

IMO B

In D - 'that' is redundant before 'its root house bacteria'.
Reason is that - I think require phrase and not just noun.

i think why and because.. also corresponds in B

Between B and D, D IMO. ''The reason why sth happens is that..." not 'because'
