D but not confident

A has a Subj agreement error
B child acquiring language is wrong ('s)
C to indicate - meaning, conference was not hosted to indicate
D could be correct, but parallelism of hild acquires language, thinking, and emotional skills might be wrong
E indicative of doesnt sound right to me, any explanation could help

D is obv the best of the answer choices available, somethign that GMAT stresses, but IMO D has parallelism errors (gerund - nouns etc)

Hillary Clinton...hosted a conference on...findings indicating that a child’s acquisition ............ is an active process that may be completed before age three.

Hillary Clinton...hosted a conference on...findings indicative of a child’s acquisition of X, Y and Z as an active process that may be completed before age three. --> this is wrong because we need 'that' with an essential clause. The conference is about some findings and what did those findings indicate. (The findings indicated that.....)

Hence E is wrong. I dont know if this makes sense.

I did some research on this particular problem and found the light on the MGMAT guide.

On their IDIOM list they listed this form as WRONG: A report INDICATES unique bacteria AS present on our skin... and that GMAT prefers... A report INDICATES THAT unique bacteria LIVE on our skin

Knowing that we can easily eliminate A,B,E with the INDICATES/INDICATIVE OF... AS form
Also, "IS INDICATIVE OF" form is SUSPECT for GMAT test writers. If possible, it must be avoided.

We are now left with C and D.

C is wrong because it changes the intent of the author. It sounds like Hillary Rodman hosted the conference on new finding to indicate... But we are just looking for something that modifies or explain something about the new findings.

D for me as well...

From the question stem it is clear that "an active process " has to be defined by one of the answer choices.

As per sentence D- "a child’s acquisition of language, thinking, and emotional skills", brings out an object acquisition to perfectly fit to complete the rest of the sentence as written in the question.

The correct answer is D as it correctly maintains the subject verb agreement which the question is testing.

E is wrong because "indicative of X as Y" is not correct idiom. It should be "X indicative of Y". For example: behavior indicative of mental disorder.
Hope it helps.
