IMO C
D and E are wrong because passive voice is used
A and B are wrong because parallelism is missing

Close between C and D.

the, use of 'then' in C breaks the parallelism.
D leave them... corral them ...drive them ...fits the bill.However, the 'only thing' tampers the meaning here.
But somehow,
IMO D.

The first thing to remember here is the there are only two items in this list and not three as one would be led to believe. This is the essence of this tricky question. The two items of the list are 1. Leave them alone while they feed themselves (meaning graze) and 2. Corral them and drive them. The first of the lists is the one that the cattle themselves can do without outside help and the second is the one wherein somebody as the rancher has to do those things for them. You need the conjunction ‘and’ at appropriate places to conjugate the two items in the overall list and to join the two items in the second arm. You do not need any commas before any of the ‘ands’ in the choice, since there are only two items in each of the master list and in the sub-list. As per this tenet, only C fits in and you can dump all the other four. Thus you can hit four mangos with a single stone.

If you still want, you can ponder with infinitive parallelism and so on

My doubt is clear now

Is D is incorrect because it is talking about a single activity(the only thing) whereas the question stem is talking about the multiple activities.

Can someone answer this??
