[B]. Angular and rough aggregates reduce the workability of the concrete
[C]. Large size aggregates increase the workability due to lesser surface area
[D]. The slump of the concrete mix decreases due to an increase in temperature
[E]. All the above.

Size is inversely proportional to surface area. When the aggregate are broken down to smaller sizes, more surface area is exposed. Thus, for the same volume, large sized aggregate have lesser surface area, thereby lesser wetting area, leading to more free water which in turn improves workability.
