Hi Rohit,
The correct idiomatic usage of substitute is - substitute x for y
Therefore eliminate A, C, E
D is incorrect as it should have "emphasizes" instead of the incorrect usage of 'emphasis is' which should be followed by 'on' rather than 'that'

Hope this helps.

Consider kudos for the post

Also in D "Ms. Burton’s emphasis" is not comparable/parallel to "the educators"

It's a Idiom question. (substitute x for y)

I think it is easy question and not a 700 level for sure.
