Between B & D, i went for B due to object pronoun and possessive noun (scientists' presentation). But on closer reading, B has subject verb agreement error in so far as "scientists presentation", a singular noun, has a plural verb i.e. "are". That anomaly is solved in D. Therefore, D is the right answer.
