Chimerical, Fallible

IMO here the author trying to convene that the individual's opinions are not infallible. Individuals tend to make mistakes, so we dont need to take those opinion as a sacred cow(An idiom for something that cannot be questioned). Hence we need to find a synonym similar to "makes mistake".
Fallible properly fits the place, but i am skeptical about chimerical
Carcass or Can anyone please explain?

Guys always try to simplify the question and carve out the real gist of the problem. The real essence of the meaning of the question.

"Peer-review is a vital part of the scientific community. However, thinking that it is perfect if fallacious or a chimera (a chimera is an animal double-made of different animals. You say that a goal is a chimera when it is unachievable).

So D and E are the two correct answer.

Hope this helps.

PS: under this light, we just launched a new project: how to tackle every type of question under quant. Soon, also, verbal.
