No issues with (E)

X describes a Y

(D) contains an unnecessary word " Often " and changes the meaning.

So, I will go with (E)

Hi,

the TERM itself cannot be SOMETHING, TERM can describe or refer to something..
so ONLY C and E are left..
I am sure there is a typo in C and it is OR and not OF
indefinite article 'a' is better than 'the'
E is correct
