A. share 98% of the genetic DNA, lead complex social lives, eat both plants and animals, and are handy with tools :After comma here, we need a modifier describing how chimpanzees are human's closest relatives .
B. share 98% of the genetic DNA, lead complex social lives, eat both plants and animals, and being handy with tools : Same error as in A, Use of being is wrong.
C. they share 98% of the genetic DNA, lead complex social lives, eat both plants and animals, and are handy with tools : Run on error : The sentence before comma is an independent clause and after comma,here, is another independent clause.Both these IC are joined by a comma which is wrong.
D. sharing 98% of the genetic DNA, leading complex social lives, eating both plants and animals, and being handy with tools : Use of being is wrong.
E. sharing 98% of the genetic DNA, leading complex social lives, eating both plants and animals, and they are handy with tools : Correct.

EG


IMO D.
We need Verb+ing to correctly modify the previous clause, hence A, B and C are out.
Out of D and E, E is wrong because it breaks the parallelism after 'and', so option D is the best among the lot.

It should be D.

All elements are in parallel out there. And verb-ing modifier correctly shows how property of verb-ing modifier.
