D. "how....turned over ARE" should be "how...turned over" IS.
E is the best

The are in choice D is for 'how items are placed AND frequncy of inventory turnover', both of these are often crucial to profits

I don't agree that it is the IS vs ARE is the issue.

Actually are is correct because how X and how Y form a compound subject and are is correct.

IMO, its E because the option D makes it a certainty by using are and can be is an uncertainity

that is correct, but, in order to make a // structure, since the nonunderlined is a passive construction, you need a passive construction as in D, dont u?

Thanks

I am not good in SC, :-) but i think E, as is it parallel and something to do with fact so simple present tense is the best.
