We have a list of three factors, which impact the cost advantage of owning a house, so we need the plural form of the verb "to have". This rules out options A, B and C.

E sounds as if there is a growing demand for congestion and commuting trips, which is illogical. "As well as" doesn't really have a place in there.

IMO D is the correct answer. Unlike E, D is not ambiguous and the correct verb form is used.

d is the choice.

Rest all have problems.

Need plural, have, for the cordinate list...

I dont like as well as in E, the list should be consistant with nouns or noun phrases....
