I pick D too..

You have an adj+noun combination of series...

D fits the most.

B is correct but not precise.. The author could write an economy that is sluggish and a stretch of weather that is bad..

So B is INCORRECT.

if b would have been written as:

"and the chilling effect of persistent terrorist activity"

i guess, that would have been right.

[quote="macca"]Europe’s travel industry is suffering as a result of a sluggish economy, a stretch of bad weather, as well as the chilling effects of terrorist activity that is persistent.

(A) as well as the chilling effects of terrorist activity that is persistent
- Unclear as to whether it is chilling effects or terrorist activity that is persistent

(B) and the chilling effect of terrorist activity that is persistent
- Same as A

(C) but persistent terrorist activity has had a chilling effect too
- To maintain parallelism, should be "and", not "but"

(E) as well as the chilling effects of terrorist activity that persists
- "that persists" is awkward

<b>D</b> it is.

(A) as well as the chilling effects of terrorist activity that is persistent
(B) and the chilling effect of terrorist activity that is persistent
(C) but persistent terrorist activity has had a chilling effect too
(D) and the chilling effects of persistent terrorist activity
(E) as well as the chilling effects of terrorist activity that persists


I think the explaination for eliminating B would be that it sounds like the meaning is like this:
Among all the terrorist activities, only those that are persistent have a chilling effect and are a reason for the economy to suffer.
