First compare the options with before having to leave and before leaving.
so we have option B and E on one side and A,C and D on the other side.

before having to leave is wrong so eliminate option B and E.

Now in A,C and D,

A is suspicious because it has being

Thus we now have two options C and D,
to give to doesn't quite sound correct in option C.

So I go for option D.(Trying putting it in the main sentence that way it will make more sense to you.)

Can any verbal expert please confirm :?:

Grammatical Construction and Idiom
1. Being is not right in GMAT.
2. Give someone something is idiom.
3. It have to complete sentence.

so:
A) Being >> Incorrect.
B) Awkward and wrong idiom
C) Awkward and wrong structure "two week's notice"
D) Correct
E) Awkward.

So the answer is D
