The only differnce between A and D is Assess.
In A - "In assessing" there is no corresponding noun, e.g., object who assess the problem.
That's the only reason why D is more preferable. But I'm not sure. What is the OA?

D is better among all.

Except A and D, all have pronoun problems.

in A, it seems the question is assessing the problems.

D is better and moreover in D, they have a clear referent.

D is well structured so I would prefer "D" and
