A, B, & C are incorrect because they say they say the "theory" is a swiss psychiatrist. That leaves D and E. E is clearly the better choice because it is much more precise than D. D is unnecessarily wordy and is just overall a bad sentence.

We need an active noun after comma. A, B, & C are out as they all are using possessive noun "Carl Jung’s theory".

For D & E, we need a VERBing modifier after "process of" as the non - underlined part starts with "opposing".

In (D) "the balance of" and "opposing" are not parallel.

Answer choice (E) provides the same "balancing".

Therefore (E).

Options A,B and C are eliminated because it mentions that theory is a psychiatrist whereas Carl Jung is a Swiss psychiatrist. In Option D "continuation of the process of the balance of" is wordy and there is lot of redundancy. Option E is crisp and conveys clear intended meaning hence E
