1) I think C is the correct answer. So if the answer is really D I am as bewildered as you are.. or more..

2) Answer D is wrong because of the tense: "Labor remains demanding" is present tense, and "could" is past tense.

3) The underlined part of the sentence is a modifier. so there's got to be a reference to the other part. "which" does that job, "that" doesn't.

I agree that Q1 is a little tough. But if you see, all choices other than D have "....included...and to include....." or "....to include.... and ....included..." structure which do not go together. The only choice that sounds okay is D

here it goes. (don't trust my opinion very much, i ain't native speaker)

a. including child-care facilities and clustered suburban houses including (seems like she calls for houses and she calls for facilities. second including is very ambiguous)
b. that included child-care facilities, and for clustered suburban houses to include (do you see difference? eliminate)
c. with child-care facilities included and for clustered s.houses to include (included is ambiguous. it is houses that should include facilities. to include - 'neither here nor there')
d. very easy to read and coherent sentence.
e. to include.. (houses to include? if it is necessary to keep to, then i'd say 'houses to be equipped with')

in number 1, D is correct because it is the only choice that correctly and in a parallel manner shows that each type of building was restricted to a certain type.
