A seems pretty good. Computer software is singular.

we need not only....... but also construction


so D and E is out.

we are refering to singular computer software. so have in B is incorrect.

so we are lefte out with A and C.

it in c is ambiguous.

So I choose A

not only.... but also is the correct idiom. Eliminate C, D and E.

Computer software is a singular subject. So we need a singular noun.

I pick A!

Vote for B.

The computer software being designed for a project studying Native American access to higher education will not only meet the needs of that study, but also has the versatility and power of facilitating similar research endeavors.

Note: Will not only meet ......, (will) but also have (not has) ...
So must be B.

taquanghai is absolutly correct. the subject is singular so we need singular subject.
model+ have..... correct
model+has ......incorrect.
with model "will", have also works as singular verb as under:

this is a classic question and test "not only........but also" and "use of models".
Models ("will/can/should/would/could/should/may/might/ought") never take singular verbs. they always accompained by plural verbs. lets see the above sentence in two forms:

A. The computer software being designed for a project studying Native American access to higher education will not only meet the needs of that study, but also will has the versatility and power of facilitating similar research endeavors............ incorrect

B. The computer software being designed for a project studying Native American access to higher education will not only meet the needs of that study, but also will have the versatility and power to facilitate similar research endeavors...................correct

A has another flaw too i.e. preposition ("of"). "power to" is better than "power of".

hope that makes clear.
