what's the purpose of 'that' in choice E. further more, this choice doesn't convey the meaning indicated in "specific jobs benefiting the public,". The choice just says jobs... but nothing about whether it is benefiting or not.

OA is 'E'.

Here "The number of" is being used and its Singular. So "Has" should be used. So be left with "D" and "E". Option "E" looks better.
