I choose C.

I can't think of what's wrong with A though.

IMO the best choice is E.
All other including A is using their as a pronoun for everyone.
However D is completely different in meaning as it is talking about terrible negligence!!

I thought E uses sexist launguage. I heard somewhere that GMAT does not like such language. Otherwise E is grammatically correct.

I agree your opinion.
And, I think the correct answer is E because this question test the unity of whole sentence. Thus, E is compatible..........

OFFICIAL ANSWER:

E. The pronoun everyone is singular. (If somone doesn't want to trust me on this, one can use this pronoun in a simple sentence. "Everyone is happy that you are applying to bschool" versus "Everyone are happy that you are applying to bschool.") Answer choices A, B, and C can now be quickly eliminated. Answer choice D changes the meaning of this sentence too much. One could reasonably argue that the speaker of the sentence did not intend to convey that strong of an opinion on the accident.
