For Q-1

The best answer is D. The phrase devotees of Willa Cather presents a complete possessive without adding an apostrophe to her last name. Because the sentence describes a past event, the verb has in the present tense is incorrect.

Q-2

The best answer is B. Choice B clearly and correctly uses parallel noun phrases to list the effects of Hornby’s actions: an increase in… a fortification of….

Q-1 In the thirties and forties, devotees of Willa Cather’s maintained that her writing has all the qualities found in the highest order of American writers of the nineteenth and twentieth century.
A. Cather’s maintained that her writing has
B. Cather’s maintained that her writing had
C. Cather’s have maintained that her writing had
D. Cather maintained that her writing had
E. Cather maintained that her writing has

I think it is D. "Devotees of Willa Canther maintained that her writing had" [Past tense required]

Q-2 William Hornby acquired bison herds for breeding stock hoping that this move would eventually lead to increasing in their numbers, and a fortification of their environment.
A. increasing in their numbers,
B. an increase in their numbers,
C. their increase in numbers,
D. an increasing in numbers,
E. an increasing in the numbers of them

B. Preposition an is required.

Non-underlined part says 'thirties and forties'. So the sentence is talking as of past date.
