Official Solution:

Solution
The correct answer is (E). A plural subject requires a plural verb. Since “snowflakes” is plural, its verb must be plural as well. (D) and (E) correct this error, but (D) would need a connector like "as" ("to justify the labeling of them as unique"). E is therefore correct.

i was able to get to correct answer But couldn't understand why D is wrong as per above Explanations. Any Thought Please?

Its because of the extra "the" in D. ""the" labeling doesnt sound correct.

the is not an issue, read the veritas solution it is clearly saying it needs connector. The is not at all subject of dispute or debate.

Dont tell me you think "the labeling of them exact replicas" is the right ending.
