A) of there being little that is a significant difference-> Awkward (being)
B) of there being little that is significantly different-> Awkward (being)
C) of little that is significant different -> Adj + Adj
D) that there is little that is significantly different -> Keep
E) that there is little that is significant differences --> S V agreement

Please, explain

I think its D

Generation of + N/N Phrase
Generation that + Clause

D looks ugly though but I think it is the answer

I feel that "generalization that" is idiomatically more correct. E is plain wrong because of subject verb. So the answer is D.

I agree with what everyone has noted above.

The reason why I went with the "that" split was because they are trying to define the generalization, whenever you try to define something, "that" is the most applicable relative pronoun to use.

That would narrow it down to D & E. Clearly the SVA for E is incorrect, so D is the correct one.

Is the usage of being always wrong ? If it is , why so ? Can anyone explain the usage of being ?

Choice D gives it a different meaning I feel. Whats the OA ?

Whats wrong with A ?

Being is always wrong since it signals redundancy.
I also agree D is the answer after going through the process of elimination. E is not clear and differences does not agree with the sentence that follows afterward. If you use differences you have to have between somewhere to make it idiomatically correct

Also go for D because of correct idiom "different from".

not sure whether anyboday above raised this conceren.

The investigations of many psychologist and anthropologists support the generalization "that there is little that is significantly different" in underlying mental processes manifested by people from different culture.
