A. letting it go (where) circumstances are auspicious to do (it) in the future

B. letting (them) go (where) circumstances are auspicious to do so in the future

C. letting (them) go when circumstances are auspicious to do( it )in the future

D. letting it go when circumstances are auspicious to do so in the future - correct

E. letting it go when circumstances are auspicious to do (it)in the future

So, instead of it, should be used to represent an action.
When should be used to modify time.

IMO - D is the answer.

A. letting it go "where" circumstances are auspicious to do "it" in the future - Incorrect - It has no antecedent. Also, where is incorrectly used here. Where refers to place.

B. letting "them" go "where" circumstances are auspicious to do so in the future - Incorrect - Them is wrong here. It should be used.

C. letting "them" go when circumstances are auspicious to do "it" in the future - Incorrect - Them is wrong here. It should be used, also it is incorrect here.

D. letting it go when circumstances are auspicious to do so in the future - Correct

E. letting it go when circumstances are auspicious to do 'it' in the future - Incorrect - It is wrong here.
