My Analysis:

A. Is a run-on. The subject event exchange do not have a verb.
B. The singular pronoun It is used to refer a plural noun 30 people. Also, circumventing and trying to purchase are not two different entities. Hence it is wrong.
C. Meaning change and also the modifier circumventing is not correctly modifying the intended entity. According to this choice, the company is circumventing which doesn't make sense. Hence it is out.
D. Correct since the Subject verb pair exists and the meaning is clear.
E. The actions trying and suing are not parallel according to the intended meaning. The company has sued 30 people trying to...
Hence it is out.

Thanks

Option A: Event Exchange doesnt have a verb - Wrong
Option B: Event Exchange, blah blah, has sued people accusing it blah blah - here "accusing it" modifies 30 people, leading to illogical meaning
Option C: Accusing them again illogically modifies 30 people and no conjunction to maintain any parallelism
Option D: Proper Subject Verb and now "accusing them" modifies action
Option E: Company is trying to counter and is also suing- makes these two events discrete and at the end of underlined sentence, sentence should be " to try to purchase" not "to try and purchase"

B: "it" modifies 30 people, pronoun error
C: Accusing them is wrongly modifying Event Exchange.. Parallelism error as well.
D: Proper Subject Verb and now "accusing them" modifies 30 people. Correct
E: Multiple errors. One of them being: to try and.
