The original sentence is incorrect because there is a subject verb agreement error because is and conflicting accounts don't match and the verb comes before the subject.
A) When investigating an incident from the distant past, it is a common occurrence that there is partially or completely conflicting accounts of the same event and, therefore, to construct a realistic historical hypothesis, one should collate as many records as one can
B) To construct a realistic historical hypothesis, one should collate as many records as one can because when investigating an incident from the distant past, it is a common occurrence that there are partially or completely conflicting accounts of the same event
Subject and verb match as both are plural-keep

C)When investigating an incident from the distant past, it is a common occurrence that there are partially or completely conflicting accounts of the same event, and to construct a realistic historical hypothesis, one should therefore collate as many records as he can
The subject and verb agreement is correct here but the sentence is grammatically incorrect. The pronoun he doesn't have a noun that it refers to.

D) When investigating an incident from the distant past, a common occurrence is that there are partially or completely conflicting accounts of the same event, so one should collate as many records as they can in order to construct a realistic historical hypothesis
While the subject and verb tense is fixed here, this sentence is not grammatically correct as one is singular and they is plural.

E)To construct a realistic historical hypothesis, one should collate as many records as one can because when investigating an incident from the distant past, it commonly occurs that there is partially or completely conflicting accounts of the same event
This is grammatically incorrect because the verb comes before the subject and the verb and subject don't match as is is singular and conflicting accounts is plural.

B is the only answer where the subject and verb match and the meaning of the sentence is correct.
