E. America agreed to advance agenda of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) by focusing

A. "expressed agreement" is incorrect. So A is eliminated.
B. Prosperity is missing. It would change the meaning of the sentence. So B is eliminated.
C. "focus" is used in wrong form. So C is eliminated.
D. Correct
E. "advance agenda" is wrong. So E is eliminated

Expressed agreement is wordy. We can go for agreed in place of that. Rejected.

Quote:
B. America agreed to advance the agenda of the Security Partnership of North America (SPP) by focusing
Here we don't have the full form of SPP. It's a fragment of the actual agenda given in the question. Rejected.

Quote:
C. America expressed agreement to advance the agenda of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) by a focus
Wordy structure - "expressed agreement". Let's reject this.

Quote:
D. America agreed to advance the agenda of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) by focusing
It seems correct. Let's keep it.

Quote:
E. America agreed to advance agenda of the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) by focusing
Here the definitive article "The" missing before SPP agenda. So we can reject this option as the leaders agreed on a specific agenda.
