it's = "it is"
its = possesive pronoun

Knowing this you can boil down to C & E ... all other choices are incorrect in the usage of its and it's

in sentence (c) .. "chasing the self" is incorrect usage

Hence : (e)

D is wrong because we need IT's (IT IS) not ITS. Also at the second place in D we need ITS not IT's (IT IS).

E is correct.

I too chose D at first.

I didn't catch missing apostrophes.. I should sleep now.

E is the best choice.

D needs a clause after because. 'Its' and 'It's' are reversed.

"it's=it is" this is not formal written english and i'm skeptical that you'll see such a question in gmat. although the OA is clear but i still doubt that gmat will test informal written english.

Indeed good one.

I narrowed down to D and E as "chasing itself in circles" made sense, and then picked it's. Hence, E.

I narrowed it down to possesive / usage of "it's", and that leaves us with C and E.
"Chasing the self" in C sounds wrong in my ears and that's the only explanation I can provide.

In conclusion, we are left with the winner: E
