D
'whose' is modifying 'branches' in A, B and E. All out.
'looked up and seen' is better than the other one. I don't know the gramattical or GMATical explanation why!

have...seen...is the right construction...so D and E...

in E ...we have hung..which is awkward...plus whose is modifying branches....

D is best..

"Have often looked" is present perfect and thus, we need "seen." Eliminate 1, 2, and 3.

Option 5 is incorrect since, "whose" is incorrectly modifying branches. Therefore, the correct answer must be 4.
