"Legacy" requires a noun after verb "is" to make sense --> C,D,E out of the list
A is wrong, so B is the choice

can the structure "to realize that X" be justified here.

Either I have realized "X" in which case I will go for "realization" or "realized" ,
or I don't know what "X" is so I can't really comment whether I have to realize "X" or something else.

Can sm1 throw some light on it . Can all the "to realize" options be discarded on the above ground.

I chose C, because "his or her" is better than "their"

One legacy of Madison Avenue’s recent campaign to appeal to people fifty years old and over is the realization that as a person ages, their[/u] concerns change as well.

A) The problem is the use of theirs with the word people.
B) seems good.
C) to realize that when a person ages, his or her concerns change as well. It should be changes. Also usage of when is not justifiable here.
D) The usage of when is not advisable...prefer to use as. Anyways B is better so discard it.
E)WRONG.

B-->'legacy' is parallel to 'the realization'
E-->'legacy' is NOT parallel to 'realizing'

+1 B

"as" = during; while. We need that concept in this question.
Between B and E, an action noun is better than a gerund.

One legacy of Madison Avenue’s recent campaign to appeal to people fifty years old and over is the realization that as a person ages, their concerns change as well.

(B) the realization that as people age, their

(D) to realize that when people age, their
my concern is second part of the sentence , is definite thing that concern change.... not a ongoing process hence we should use when .... in first part. is to realize and realization both are seems to be corrcet
