as we are talking about 48 states so it should be "have".. A, B , C are wrong.
Down to D and E
Use of semicolon is wrong. E conveys the meaning properly

You are right about the answer being E

But "have" would not be the correct modal here.
We are NOT talking about the 48 states. Notice the definite article "the" and the other hint "only one"

if it says the only one of..., then it's singular.
if it says only one of... (without the), then it's plural.
in the phrase "wolf population", wolf is actually an adjective, not a noun. you can't use a pronoun to stand for an
adjective.
you can't say "such a wolf" or "this wolf" either; those constructions imply that you actually have some particular wolf
in mind.

The parallelism is not maintained and where is better than that because it is referring to a place.
