Here we have verrb tense and verb number problem
we need simple present tense to reflect the intended meaning
(A)Incorrect which is the most liquid of all the organization's assets, disappeared and vanished
Past tense verb is used
(B) Incorrect the most liquid of all the organization's assets, disappear and vanish
Verb number error. As much as 10% is subject and is singular and verb is plural
(C) Incorrect the organization's assets which were most liquid, will disappear and vanish
Future tense is used.
the organization's assets which is unnecessay wordy
(D) Correct the most liquid of all the organization's assets, disappears and vanishes
verb is in the right form
Here in option D "the most liquid of all the organization's assets" appositive is written in concise way
(E) Incorrect the organization's assets which are the most liquid, have disappeared and vanished
we don't need present perfect.
At the same time the organization's assets which...... is redundant

Hi guys; Per kind favor of GMAT Pill, let's learn a new meaning for 'unusual'. In the case of celebrating ceremonies, "unusual" is something that occurs regularly.
