E. The Senate passing its measures marked the end of the last days of the congressional session.

A and C are wrong due to "it's". Now the question is what actually marked the end of the last day...is it the senate or the senate's passing? Out of B and D...I went for D. In the congressional session...probably the passing marked the end...

Yes, the OA is D.

"its" is the possessive form where as "it's" is equivalent to "it is"
