Edited the question...While posting the SC question put the format of the question correctly.

A. that indicates a child’s acquiring language, thinking, and emotional skills as - findings are plural and indicates is singular and child's acquiring is incorrect.
B. that are indicative of a child acquiring language, thinking, and emotional skills as - should be that indicate instead of indicative
C. to indicate that when a child acquires language, thinking, and emotional skills, that it is - Meaning error.
D. indicating that a child’s acquisition of language, thinking, and emotional skills is - This is better...
E. indicative of a child’s acquisition of language, thinking, and emotional skills as - Meaning error.

"Acquisition" is the subject, which is singular. The verb "is" is alright.
There is split in the answer choices between as and is.
The answers that include as are incorrect. X indicates Y as Z and X is indicative of Y as Z are incorrect idioms. The correct idioms are:
X indicates that Y is Z
X is indicative of Y (no Z)
X indicates that Y is Z is preferable because it's more direct.
Eliminate A, B and E.
In C, the pronoun it is ambiguous.
