This is like my first ever explanation for a SC question. I will try my best.
Notice that " is not underlined so it has to be closed as well. E is out.
Before that problem with A is the comma inside the quotes. Doesn't make sense. Same problem with C. Gone.
Between B and D, it boils down to their vs there. their is possessive. So we need a there. Hence D.
