I think D makes most sense. Generally, if you see that a noun has been used instead of a pronouns while the other answer choices have the pronouns, generally it is the right one. I am not a big fan of self-made questions (though I have made a few of my own), so I am not going to edit the OAs, but if I were to see this on test day, I would mark D and move on.

Just my thought.

The answer has to be option D. All other options use the pronoun "there" referring to "Antarctica". As per GMAT a pronoun should only refer to noun and "Antarctica's" is an adjective in this sentence.

As I understand, the option D has to be correct because in GMAT in this case you can not use "there", when it was not "Antarctica" in the previous part, but was only "Antartica's".

Example.
Wrong. Ben's room is so messy that his sister calls him a pig.
There is no antecedent for "him".
Right: Ben has a room that is so messy, that his sister calls him a pig.

I believe, there is no ambiguity if "there" refer back possessive noun. Please refer to this article by magoosh https://magoosh.com/gmat/2013/gmat-pronoun-traps/

I guess, apart from "there" there are other issues which can help to derive correct answer.

A. they promised each other that they would one day go there and see one.
In fact I find one as problematic. The object of the subordinate clause if Oracs and it is plural. Why we are using one. Again I will go by what GMATNinja says, don't go by the sound. Please correct me if I am wrong

B. they promised each other that he would one day go there and see them.

C. they promised each other that they would one day go there and see them.
This answer looks good. However, while solving this problem, I have marked D as correct but now I think C is the right answer.

D. they promised each other that they would one day go to Antartica and see one.
Same issue as in A

E. they promises each other that they would one day go there and see them.

GMATNinja, mikemcgarry can you please clear my doubt.
thanks in advance.
