Don't we require a comma after 'chef'?
Hence chose D

To be a great chef a person must possess three attributes: they must be creative, stamina, and good taste.
A. a person must possess three attributes: they must be creative
B. requires three attributes: they must be creative
C. a person must possess three attributes: creativity
D. requires of a person the possession of three attributes: creativity
E. requires three attributes of a person: creating

Split #1: Wee see that the list of attributes consists of substantives. Hence, the first word in this list must be one too - creativity. Therefore, we can preclude all options that don't use "creativity". Those are A), B) and E).

Split #2: Now we're left with C) and D). In my opinion, D) is unidiomatic. It should be "to require X of Y". In this case the syntax doesn't work out. Besides that, C) is completly fine and more concise. Therefore, C) is the correct choice.

Hope that helps
