A firm that specializes in the analysis of handwriting claims from a one-page writing sample that it can assess more than three hundred personality traits, including enthusiasm, imagination, and ambition.

(A) from a one-page writing sample that it can assess ==> A Firm... claims... from a one-page writing sample.. == After carefully reading, it changes the meaning, A firm does not claim from one page of writing samples, rather A firm claims about their ability to........ assess............. - Hence Out

(B) from a one-page writing sample it has the ability of assessing ==> A Firm... claims... from a one-page writing sample.. == After carefully reading, it changes the meaning, A firm does not claim from one page of writing samples, rather A firm claims about their ability to........ assess............. - Hence Out

(C) the ability, from a one-page writing sample, of assessing ==> "The Ability - Of" is incorrect IDIOM

(D) to be able, from a one-page writing sample, to assess ==> Abe To == Is correct IDIOM

(E) being able to assess, from a one-page writing sample, == Usage of "being able" is incorrect

In choice A, the relative pronoun that refers to the sample, which is not the intended idea of the sentence.
Ability should be followed by an infinitive, hence choice B can be eliminated.
Choice C repeats the error present in choice B
Choice D rectifies all the errors, hence is the right answer.
Choice E changes the intended meaning of the sentence. Also, being is incorrectly used.
Hope it helps.
Keep practicing!! Consistency is the key.
All the best!!
