    "is an active process" is preferred over "as an active process". C and D
    remain. C has an awkward use of "that".

    Is it D ?

    I think D!

    A - Verb indicates does not agree with new findings
    B - indicative of child is incorrect
    C - that is - makes it wordy and starts a new clause
    D - indicating that X is Y - Correct!
    E - indicative of X as Y - incorrect..

    Regards,
    Sue

    IMO D

    A) "Indicates" is singular when the subject "findings" is plural
    B) not parallel
    C) not parallel. There is also a pronoun reference error with "it"
    E) Indicative of X as Y is idiomatically incorrect

    Although they all seem to have some flaw in their construction I'd go with D b/c it seems least likely to be incorrect.

    Indicating + Clause is correct
