IMO: A
B: usage of "for" is incorrect.
C: Comparisons is not structurally parallel.
D: Not parallel.
E: I'm not sure. Maybe too wordy. Moreover, Present tense is more appropriate than Past tense.

(A) like that of earlier generations
(B) as that for earlier generations
(C) just as earlier generations did
(D) as have earlier generations
(E) as it was of earlier generations


(A) like that of earlier generations -- "like that"- wrong comparison + not parallel
(B) as that for earlier generations - not parallel + "that" has a wrong usage here.
(C) just as earlier generations did - action by the earlier generations
(D) as have earlier generations - wrong usage as have
(E) as it was of earlier generations - this is perfectly parallel

"still a goal of a majority of young adults, as it was of earlier generations"

The answer is
[Reveal] Spoiler:
E

You're right. I got it. I was confused with Answer A and E.
+1 E

In A and B, like that and as that imply two separate goals, one similar to the other. But in the SC above there is only one goal: owning and living in a freestanding house. The intended meaning of the sentence is that this one goal is common to all the generations. Eliminate A and B.

In C, it is unclear what verb is being replaced by did. Eliminate C.

In D, it is unclear what earlier generations have done. Eliminate D.

The correct answer is E.
