stimulating vs that stimulates. that stimulates is correct so A,B and C are out.
Out of D and E, has proved helpful in teaching real world share trading is correct.

proves itself means that the gmae by itself proved which is not correct. So E is correct answer.

Could anyone please mention about using that stimulates and stimulating. Why one is preferred over the other and is it the same thing with all other sentences. Is a that clause always preferred on GMAT ?

I'm not an expert, but I believe split "stimulating" vs "that stimulates" not decision point in this sentence. Experts might correct me if I'm wrong, but there is no strong preference of "that" over "-ING" modifier on GMAT.

The only information I met about the similar split is in explanation to this question: https://gmatclub.com/forum/salt-deposit ... -6837.html
The explanation states that it is not correct to use present participle "flourishing" when we are talking about something definitely from the past, and for such a case "that flourished" works better.

Hope it helps
