The answer should be "E". Most clear and most logical.
in "D", what is the referent for "it". it is wordy, awkward and absolutely unclear.

I also agree with correct answer as E.

D) is wrong, becoz at first it says "...it controls most...",which indicates, according to this answer, economists, which is incorrect. Because "it" can't be a modifier of "economists", which one indicates as PERSON. so modifier "it" should not be used.
