D is correct.
A- Incorrect: there is subject-verb disagreement. should be "indicate". Moreover, the se of "as" is incorrect in this context.
B- Incorrect: very awkward. "as" is wrongly used.
C- Incorrect: parallelism, infinitive.
D- Incorrect: awkward construction.

A. that indicates a child’s acquiring language, thinking, and emotional skills as

- Findings that indicates - Serious S- V mismatch; Don’t take the argument that -indicates - is the singular verb of conference; A conference never indicates, its discussions or findings do.

B. that are indicative of a child acquiring language, thinking, and emotional skills as

-Indicative of a child – a circumlocutory expression – Findings that indicate or indicating - is more forthright

C. to indicate that when a child acquires language, thinking, and emotional skills, that it is

-Findings to indicate -is awkward and unidiomatic –

D. indicating that a child’s acquisition of language, thinking, and emotional skills is -best among the lot.

E. indicative of a child’s acquisition of language, thinking, and emotional skills as

As in B, -Indicative of a child – a circumlocutory expression – Findings that indicate or indicating - is more forthright

D therefore is the right choice

Could you please explain why indicating can not refer to ' Hillary Rodham Clinton'. I thought indicating is ambiguous and so ruled D out

If ‘indicating’ were to modify Hillary, then there should be a comma between findings and indicating. In the absence of a comma, the participle modifier will simply attach to the noun before.

In one of the most stunning reversals in the history of marketing, the Coca-Cola Company in July 1985 yielded to
thousands of irate consumers demanding that it should bring back the original Coke formula.
A. demanding that it should
B. demanding it to
C. and their demand to
D. who demanded that it
E. who demanded it to

In this example there was no comma, and the right answer was D since A could refer to The coca cola company. Can you explain how I should attack such problems? In this question i thought that indicative is better since indicating may have referred to hilary.
