D

A, B, and C are incorrect because "makes" is supposed to modify "powers". The correct modifier is "make", since "powers" is plural. This leaves D and E. E is incorrect because it is wordy and awkward.

Make/Makes
Make is correct as we are describing powers
Between D and E....
as a group is better than letters a group
So D.
