He can come tomorrow.
He may come tomorrow.
He will come tomorrow.
He could come again.
He would come again.
He might come again.

Will, can, may... always use plural form of the verb after them ... thumb rule.

Will ( not only meet, but also have ) <--- here will is common for both parts of not only but also.

Overall I am seeing such question second time (rare), first time I have also considered to choose singular.

(A) but also has the versatility and power of facilitating
(B) but also have the versatility and power to facilitate
(C) but it also has the versatility and power to facilitate
(D) and also have the versatility and power of facilitating
(E) and it also has such versatility and power that it can facilitate

We need 'have' because the sentence is all about future tense. Also B follows parallelism i.e. Will not only meet...... but also have the versatility.

Can anyone explain me wether the First clause "The computer software........ that study" is a dependent clause or independent clause. Thanks in advance

A tip for all those stuck between A & 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.
(A) but also has the versatility and power of facilitating
(B) but also have the versatility and power to facilitate

Remove not only ... but also from the construction.
==>
The software will meet the needs and have the versatility...

The same rule can be applied for any not only...but also constructions

Hope that helps.

Rule: should/would/could/should/will/can/may/might/ought never take singular verbs.

So B-->will have

Hope it will help

"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 endeavours."

Here,the clue is "MEET" which is plural verb used for a plural subject "Software"

The verb here is not meet, but will meet, which may either be singular or plural. Therefore we cannot base our analysis on subject verb agreement in this case.

The second verb is will have (the helping verb will is omitted by virtue of parallelism - .....will not only X, but also Y)

Is the 'will' in a 'Not only X but also' structure that express a future expectation/ possibility (or simply uses a future tense), always optional? Or is there some exception in this case?

I am still not convinced with B , "The computer software" is singular shouldn't choice (B) use has instead of have

B but also have/has the versatility and power to facilitate (which one is correct)

Yea I agree... with you. I had the same problem when analyzing this question.

Which sounds right:

The software has
The software have ...

Anyhow- good question otherwise.

Look here is the hint:
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 of facilitating similar research endeavors.
They are talking about future, so it is the same as He will work (not works) tommorow.

"Will" is not optional. It is mandatory when a simple future tense is required.

If "will" is inside the parallel structure, then it must be repeated:
...not only will meet, but also will have

If "will" is outside the parallel structure, then it must not be repeated:
...will not only meet, but also have.

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.
(A) but also has the versatility and power of facilitating
(B) but also have the versatility and power to facilitate ==> not only meet ..... but also have => I chose have because "and" [versatility and power]
(C) but it also has the versatility and power to facilitate
(D) and also have the versatility and power of facilitating
(E) and it also has such versatility and power that it can facilitate idiom not only but also and parallelism to higher to facilitate

After removing the fluff I can think of only two things in the sentence:
1. Idiom => not only but also
2. Parallelism => to higher to facilitate
Please correct me if i am wrong.

I also made the error by running out of time and selected incorrect option.
