E is out due to singular 'constitutes'
D is awkward
C use of 'one' not appropriate
A is preferred over B as 'that' properly modifies the children

Why not (E) ?

Isn't the subject of the sentence is "accepting parental discipline" ?
If so, 'consistutes' is correct.

Come to think of it, yes, the act of accepting requires constitues... I'll change to E.

The OA is E.
The error in the sentence is a failure of subject-verb agreement. The subject of the sentence is the gerund "accepting", a singular subject (it refers to one general action). We need a singular verb "constitutes"
