I think the problem is after the "correction" you have "for its" which should be "her" referring to Katherine. Since "its" cant be changed you have to find an answer that its is correctly referring to which is the newspaper.

can you explain some more???

I think both "its" in E are OK. The first one (in the noun modifier) refers to the modified noun, "The Wash Post" after the comma. The second "its" refers to the subject of the main clause, "The Wash Post." Both "under her command" and "for its...coverage" modify the main clause "The Wash Post won praise," so there is nothing other than The Wash Post that could be the antecedent of the second "its."

Agreed.

By the way, the reason that "Katherine Graham's becoming" is wrong is that it's an attempt to use a noun (i.e. the event when she became editor) wherever a verb would do the job. The GMAT generally thinks that a noun form of a verb is "Wordy and Awkward" in comparison to that verb.
