(E) Leakey's contributions to archaelogy include her discovering the earliest direct evidence of hominid activity and painstaking documentation of

Here's my analysis to get answer choice D:

A. "her discovery of X and painstakingly documenting Y" not parallel
B. "her discovery of X and painstakingly documenting Y" not parallel
C. parallel, but first part list another comtribution and "was a contibutor" then seems awk.
D. correct
E. "her discovering X and painstaking documentation Y" not parallel

Work should be compared with other contribution for correct comparison.

Therefore either it's D or E.
E is wrong, discovering is wrong tense and is not clear about who did the documentation.

The correct answer is "D"

"her work" is compared with "her contributions"

No where her is compared with her contribution.
