I get C

Computer software HAS the power to do something, so B and D are out.

"power to facilitate" makes it parallel with the rest of the sentence.

B and D are definetely wrong (No subject verb agreement).
A is wrong because particle 'to' is better suited in this case.

So I came to conclusion that answer should be C or E. My gut feeling tells that C sounds better.

I like A because the subject is computer software which is singular.

Which is better:

She has bags and purses or
She have bags and purses?

So A wins=)

This sentence is testing idiom not only X but also Y. A is the only one that maintains parallelism and has the correct idiom usage.

B

S-V agreement, I guess. Software is being designed. It will meet the needs of that study. It will also have the power to facilitate...

C - it is ambiguos
D, E - unidiomatic
Down to A and B
A - not parallel. (versatility and power of facilitating )

B remains.

B for me


Yurik is correct. ...versatility and power... are plural so the sentence needs "have" to make a correct SV agreement

GMATT73 its "have" because it refers to what the software could do in future.


"but also have the versatility and power to facilitate " modifies computer software.
