    IMO D

    The other options have either misplaced modifier problem or Parallelism issue.

    You won't need to chose between the two of them, here in C there is parallelism issue.
    Neither X nor Y. X and Y should parallel,which is the case in D.

    (D) it is for me.

    (A) and (E) can be quickly ruled out because we need earth's crust and not earth which is covering the planet.

    (B) despite the fact that it ..redundant. Also, neither seamless nor is it stationary are not
    parallel

    (C) despite covering - meaning issue and also wrong parallelism as mentioned in B
