Let me try..

IMO C.

It was b/w A&C.
B -out as "unqualifying" sounds awkward...A out for the same reason.
D&E -out as "consistent and unqualified" is wrong..
C -perfect.

Indeed, I did not know unqualifying was illegible word - really so, you wouldn't find it in any decent dictionary. For me sounded O'K as i am non-native (picked A during my practice test yesterday :oops:)
What about posessives labor's Perhaps GMAT prefers of <...> construction to apostrophe?

‘Unqualifying’ means undeserving or without qualifications; ‘unqualified’ means absolute and full. Both are usable in their own contexts. But here ‘unqualifying’ doesn’t fit in. So A and B are out.

By labor’ is unidiomatic; the correct idiom is either ‘from labor’ or ‘of labor’ D and E are out. C is left.
