those needs plural reference. Hence C. E is not parallel

C. In parallel structure, the structure of second clause / phrase / word needs to be followed for others.

Since, "must" is not repeated in the second phrase "have unshakable self-confidence", hence "must" is not required in the third phrase either.

(A) know how to pace yourself
(B) is knowing how to pace yourself
(C) know how to pace themselves
(D) you must pace yourself
(E) they must know how to pace themselves

My choice is C,
B, D, E are not parallel with the sentences. There are only A and C left. It can not be "yourself" >>>> so C
