IMO the answer should be D. Elaborate 'on' is needed before 'the proposal'.

IMHO : C should be the answer as every other answer has a subject verb agreement mistake.

Board of directors- Have

It is (one) board of directors. It means it is singular so the formula should be followed by "has".

I am also for answer D because of explanation SajjitaKundu provided.

What made you conclude that it's a single entirely instead of the entire board of directors

C-sv error
D-elaborate on is wrong
E-breifly discuss...changes the meaning

A. The board of directors of Aqua Pharmaceuticals has requested the representatives of the new ecological brand to elaborate and further discuss the proposal to - I don't find any errors.

B. The board of directors of Aqua Pharmaceuticals has requested the representatives of the new ecological brand to elaborate and further discuss the proposal - a preposition has to be at the end. Otherwise it makes no sense. Incorrect.

C. Aqua Pharmaceuticals' board of directors ((have)) requested the representatives of the new ecological brand to elaborate and further discuss the proposal to - incorrect.

D. Aqua Pharmaceuticals' board of directors has requested the representatives of the new ecological brand to elaborate ((on)) and further discuss the proposal to - "on" creates a weird structure. It is not at all required.

E. The board of directors of Aqua Pharmaceuticals has requested the representatives of the new ecological brand to elaborate and ((briefly discuss)) the proposal to - change of words. Not required. Eliminate.

Thus, A is the best.

I think elaborate on is preferred over elaborate and also in option A subject is 'a board has requested' whereas in D 'it is clearly mention with possessive about the board .
SO option D is more preferred.

D more concise the "on" after elabotate is the right idiom

D Aqua Pharmaceuticals' board of directors has requested the representatives of the new ecological brand to elaborate on and further discuss the proposal to on is parallel to further discuss

A -to elaborate and (to) further discuss is not parallel because further is a preposition
