I chose D over B because "notice of two weeks" sounds unidiomatic to me.

Can someone please elaborate why B is the answer presumably?

Isn't "before Leaving" better than ""having to leave".

Why Option D is incorrect. Could anyone explain please.

Thanks,

D is better then B..
In B, placement of prepositional phrase " of two weeks " changes the meaning.
It illogically conveys that employers are of two weeks..
D correctly changes the phrase before IS as a noun phrase ..
Giving....... IS .....

D is the best answer
