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
