I think I am still a little bit confused about the using of the present participles

On this example, I eliminated D because I think the "indicating"can't function as a verb by itself. If it is used as a modifier to modify the whole first sentence, a "," will be needed before the "indicating".

C has many problem. i will focus on only "to indicate"
to indicate can modify a immediately preceding noun or a preceding clause.
to modify a preceding noun, findings to indicate , is not idiom
to modiy a preceding clause, Clinton hosted to indicate , is not logic.

C is gone

A – indicates – that refers to findings hence indicates(singular verb) is wrong
B – “indicative of a child” is wrong should be indicative of child's aacqusitions
C – No referent for it
D - Correct
E – that is required after findings

Was confused with all the options , though D looks the best one but does it not mean that Hillary Clinton hosted the conference indicating that a child's acquisition of language, thinking, and emotional skills is... as if to say it would have indicated some thing else if Bill Clinton were to host

I thought first that Choice D is correct. However, "a child???s acquisition of language, thinking, and emotional skills" should be followed by a plural verb.
Am I incorrect?

Other choice does not seem to be correct.

"Acquisition" is the subject, which is singular. The verb "is" is alright.

IMO OA should be D.

a participial phrase + comma will modify the subject not the adjacent noun. However, there is no comma prior to findings. Therefore, D.

In April 1996, Hillary Rodham Clinton hosted an all-day White House scientific conference on new findings indicating that a child's acquisition of language, thinking, and emotional skills is an active process that may be largely completed before age three.

Here, the subject is "Child's acquiring language" [blah blah blah] is.

Only D seems better than other options - indicative is wrong . to indicate .... that it is - wrong so only D is left out and moreover it looks logical.
