that it is
D. indicating that a child’s acquisition of language, thinking, and emotional skills is
E. indicative of a child’s acquisition of language, thinking, and emotional skills as

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.
