A and B are out because "it" is ambiguous.
E is too wordy and awkward.
Between C and D I will go with C because D is again wordy.

@rakeshd347
Very small different between C & D.

C is wrong because:

(1) "direct contact" vs "have contact directly"
You need an adjective to modify "contact". In C, directly is an adverb that modifies verb "have". C changes the meaning. "direct contact" is correct.

(2)"through" vs "by"
If you want to talk about "direct" result, "by" is better. For instance:
My house was destroyed BY the earthquake. (direct result)
His house was rebuilt THROUGH the help of his friends. (indirect result)

Hope it helps you a little bit.

Regards.
