A. they rarely deploy

Navy is used as a singular in the sentence. Hence the pronoun "they" is INCORRECT

B. they have rarely deployed

Same error as in option A. INCORRECT

C. rarely it has deployed

missing verb for United States Navy. INCORRECT

D. it rarely deploys

"it" correctly refers to Navy. The verb tense is correctly presented in simple present to state an observation. CORRECT

E. it is rarely deploying

wrong verb tense to state an observation or a fact. INCORRECT

Hence option D

+1 for D.

A. they rarely deploy

B. they have rarely deployed

C. rarely it has deployed

D. it rarely deploys --> Correct, rectifies pronoun ambiguity and Verb-Tense agreement

E. it is rarely deploying

Hence, D.

Simple pronoun error. Here United States Navy is a singular noun. So "it" is correct instead of "they". Again considering parallel structure second element of the sentence should use a simple present tense.
So, my answer is D.
