D cannot be the answer.
In GMAT,
'which' requires a comma before it.

OK, thanks for your verification. I post the question again.
In the last few years, the number of convicted criminals given community service sentences, which allow the criminals to remain unconfined while they perform specific jobs benefiting the public, have risen dramatically.
(A) sentences, which allow the criminals to remain unconfined while they perform specific jobs benefiting the public, have
(B) sentences, performing specific jobs that benefit the public while being allowed to remain unconfined, have
(C) sentences, performing specific jobs beneficial to the public while they are allowed to remain unconfined, have
(D) sentences which allow them to remain unconfined in their performing of specific jobs beneficial to the public has
(E) sentences allowing them to remain unconfined while performing specific jobs that has

Now, you can obviously know which one is the right answer.

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.

Even if just try to look at a gramatically correct sentence... it should be

There shouldn't be any 'that' before 'has'.

So i will probably go for choice D. '

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.
