The investigations of many psychologist and anthropologists support the generalization of there being little that is a significant difference in underlying mental processes manifested by people from different culture.

A of there being little that is a significant difference
B of there being little that is significantly different
C of little that is significant different
D that there is little that is significantly different
E that there is little that is significant differences

that is introducing a clause. In A,B,C the clause after that is not
complete. We need a suject. Eliminate them.
We are left with D and E. In E "that is" and "differences" do have same number reference.

D for me

E,
1. I think, if "there is" stands for "that is", then "differences" will control the verb "is". Because "that" here, so "is" is not under control by "differences"

2. and "differences" because: "people from different culture

Idiom usage: generalization that - Eliminate A,B and C

A of there being little that is a significant difference
B of there being little that is significantly different
C of little that is significant different
D that there is little that is significantly different (Changes the meaning and not parallel)
E that there is little that is significant differences

Could you show me the "not-parallel" error of D? I choose E only because i think differences in, not different in.
