D. if we notice the red bold phrase above, we can rule-out ABC. E can also be ruled-out because the use of "it" is not clear in E.

Confused between D and E.
'underestimate that used' doesn't sound too good.

A,b,C lacks parallel construction. as mentioned above.

E is ackward construction.

OA is D

OE:

Parallelism + Agreement

This sentence has errors in parallelism and in subject verb agreement. The clause that are visible is not parallel to the adjective unobtrusive. Two kinds of equipment are being contrasted, visible and unobtrusive, so to be parallel (and concise) each adjective should appear directly before the noun it modifies, equipment. The noun equipment is singular and requires a singular verb.
