That was a good one.

obviously A vs B in this one.

I choose B b/c will have vs will has. Just reading it a few times kinda diminishes A. Also I dont particularly like of facilitating at the end of A.

B.

'The computer software' requires 'has'.
'power to facilitate' is the correct idiom.

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.

I got a question wrt B, does the comma before "but" makes the underlined portion a clause? Do we need a comma here?

B for me...
"not only but also" idiom eliminates C,D,E
will not only meet the needs of that study, but [will]also have - so B

Trembling between A and B, marked A. We can not say B sounds better to us. Per rules A is the optimal solution. Computer software SINGULAR and Paralellism both are followed.

B for me.

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
(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

A. versatility and ...facilitating --> wrong ||sms
B. and also have --> uses correct verb (sing) and versatility and ...facilitate --> correct ||sms. Best Answer.
C. but it also have ---> wordy
D. versatility and ...facilitating -> wrong ||sms
E. and it also has --> wrong tense used as "software being designed" do not agree with has.
