    Validation would need a reliable source. I would rule out A and C; as they are far too broad and not very reliable as sources.

    A study published by a research scholar could be useful. A study crediting the theory by many scientists is also reliable, however, if the research scholar was not a participant in whatever project/experiment that had taken place, he/she can only use information given by various other sources.

    Trust your instinct. D sounds far better than the other choices, simply because "crediting" is public acknowledgement and reliance on the information presented by the participants. It would be helpful if the question was more precise, but I know schools can be vague with this.
