The correct answer is E.
Female pseudohermaphrodite can be caused by congenital adrenal hyperplasia, androgen secreting adrenal or ovarian tumor in the mother and hormones administered to the mother during pregnancy. Androgen insensitivity is a cause of male pseudohermaphroditism (phenotypically are females, but have testes and karyotype of 46, XY).
