Points to consider..
1) Modifier..
"By observing" or "observing" should be followed by what is being modified
So it should be followed by some noun or pronoun.. D and E can be eliminated
2) Pronoun..
C changes the pronoun from 'you' to 'one'
Eliminate C
3) concise..
One can learn is better than one has the capacity to learn..
Eliminate A.

Ans B

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



Start with grammatical issues before moving to expression. First of all, you can eliminate (D) and (E) because the original by in by observing is necessary in order for the end of the sentence to make sense. Observing on its own makes it seem as though the act of observation is in progress rather than being a potential practice. Also, you can eliminate (C) for its pronoun errors: the choice begins with if you observe but later adds one can learn. You and one are not interchangeable; they describe different subjects and therefore can't be used interchangeably. The sentence could use you in both instances (though that would still likely be incorrect since you is too informal and imprecise for the GMAT) or one, but it can't use both. (A) and (B) remain at this point. (B) is the correct answer because one can learn is far more direct than one has the capacity to learn.
