Eccentric Seedy "the secrets" do not study the "fruit fly" and that's what the problem is with choice D. Also the secrets themselves cannot begin to get unraveled by someone. It is important to understand whose intrinsic ability is it to unravel "scientists" or "secrets" :)?

D is also seeming correct to me. In E, "a household nuisance but a time-honored experimental subject" is referring to "the study of fruit fly" not "the fruit fly" isn't it?
