I'm going to go against the trend here and vote for A.

that of correctly refers to the goal of young adults today owning and living in a freestanding house on its own land (gerund phrase).

What is OA?

No, because then you get an illogical comparison, comparing owning and living... to earlier generations

Oooops... I just saw a big miss! It cannot be A as I explained earlier, because although that of could refer to the goal explained, there needs to be a verb corresponding to is as well.

So I'm going to fall in line and go with E as well. In E, it refers to the goal described and was is parallel with is. The comparison is clear.

comparing goal of gen next with gen next so 'Like' is out should be 'as'

(B) as that for earlier generations
'that for' wrong idiom
(D) as have earlier generations
does not make sense...
(E) as it was of earlier generations
...correct answer
