Sorry, but why is E wrong? Can someone explain why 'connecting' is a better choice here over 'connects?'

Can an expert please comment on why option D is preferred to option E.
I would like to know how to eliminate option E.

I believe both "connecting" and "called" should logically point to the "Golden Gate Bridge".
The pronoun "that" in option E points to the "strait" instead of the "Golden Gate Bridge".

Hope this explanation was helpful.
