A and C are out. Singular subject 'The bank' and plural pronoun 'their' doesn't match

B is out. singular subject 'each' and plural verb 'visit'.

'Him or herself' in E doesn't tell the intended meaning.

Hence, D would be the correct one.

What is that OA?

(A) that many of its customers no longer visit the bank itself. - Correct
(A) that many of its customers no longer visit the bank him or herself. - Should be himself or herself. The meaning is also distorted as the intent is to say there is no need to visit the bank.

Bank is Singular entity.So, it boils down directly to B,D,E.

Original sentence talks of many customers.not each customer.We should always stick to intention of the original statemnt provided.So,B out.

Bank is a nonliving object and not human.So, himself herself prounoun is wrong. Should be itself. So, E wrong

D correctly addresses all mistakes.

Should be D.

Their Vs its -
The Bank is Singular so " its " reject C and A for using " their"

In E , should have been " himself or herself " reject E for using " him ".

B is awkward for using " Each " , suggesting that not a single person will need to visit the bank again.This is extreme.

D should be Correct , uses " many " instead of " each ".
