they usage is wrong in a,b,d.

Narrowed down to C and E.

C uses ascends properly. So C is my answer.

E it is.

Narrowing down b/w C and E, would select E coz of -
||ism -> "internal pressure of the human body and that of the ocean"
usage -> "it is essential that a diver ... ascend slowly...."

Uh uh. I know what you're thinking. "Is the answer A, B, C, D or E?" Well to tell you the truth in all this excitement I kinda lost track myself. But you've gotta ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?

For the above reasons I agree that E is the best option.But I beleive that the "ascend" should be "ascends" in option E.Option C does use "ascends" but then "difference ..between" is more appropriate.Hence I beleive that option E is the best and "ascend" should be "ascends".Please correct me if I'm wrong.

E

"It is essential " requires the subjcuntive mode so "ascend"

the same for other words such as :

arrange, desire, demand, directive, pleadd, recommend, request, etc

I was trapped by "c" though at first sight

It is not the body pressure and ocean pressure that ascends sloyly

It is the diver so....ascends is correct IMO

I will pick C

no, buddy, this one is subjunctive mood :)

According to the golden Manhattan SC book which we know is the best of the kind:
you should use subjunctive mood for verbs following words and phrases such as "advice, advisable, ask, arrange,....essential, fitting, imperative, important, insist, necessary,etc....."

So the verb following these indicators must be in bare-infinitive form.

Shouldn't the sentence be "...it is essential that a diver returning to the surface [u]be ascending slowly or he..."

It is also a continuous subjunctive form as explained here:
http://www.englishpage.com/minitutorials/subjunctive.html

it should follow the word "be" after "ascend"

After narrowing it down to C or E, I choose E because "differences between" is more appropriate thatn "differences in" when comparing two things.
