Because this prompt consists of two independent clauses separated by a semicolon,
we can focus the first check for grammar errors on the second sentence.

Everything that follows "gradual process" is not necessary to understand meaning. Shorten the sentence:

Improvements in theoretical scientific understanding [VERB] typically [the result of?] a gradual process.

Split #1: Subject verb agreement

A) improvements . . .is
B) improvements . . . results
E) improvements . . . has

Eliminate A, B, and E

Split #2: Complete sentence vs. fragment

Option C creates a fragment.
Inserted into the shortened version of the sentence, we have:

Improvements in theoretical scientific understanding, which typically result from a gradual process [of development over time, sometimes across different domains of science].

That construction is a fragment. There is no working verb for the subject improvements.
GMAC often attaches a which clause in order to hide the Missing Verb.

Incorrect: Improvements, which typically result from X of Y, sometimes across Zs.

Eliminate C

The correct answer is D
