To protest what? In this instance, only one of choices can come after "protest" and answers the question "to protest what?" So, D.

B,C and E are out because of using themselves....A is out because of using being....D also expresses the same thing, which A express without 'being'....so IMO D

OA is A.

I also chose D and was not sure how A could be right. I think, if we replace "being" with "getting" in option A, it makes sense.

Thanks ritula for the link.
