Here OA is "E" but i went for "D" because of the fact that scientist interpret the data which is almost categorically accepted whereas in "E" there is different meaning altogether.

Also, the phrase between the commas means it is a redundant phrase -> another reason why D is wrong.
E has "it" but the pronoun is acceptable.

I assume that you're referring to the "it" at the beginning of the sentence? It's actually fine: this is called a non-referential pronoun, and it's exceedingly rare on the GMAT. For example, we could say "it is raining", and that's fine, even though "it" doesn't actually refer to anything. Again: these show up only very, very rarely on the GMAT, and I don't think they're worth worrying about TOO much.

A slightly longer discussion of non-referential pronouns is available here: for-those-who-share-space-in-communal-workshops-172434.html#p1829681

I hope this helps!
