+1 for C.

(A) but China’s and Pakistan’s too --> No verb

(B) and also China’s and Pakistan’s --> No verb

(C) but so have China’s and Pakistan’s --> Correct, rectifies verb and parallel error i.e, "A has, B and C have"

(D) and so also China’s and Pakistan’s --> No verb

(E) but so did China’s and Pakistan’s --> Incorrect, Not parallel "A has, B and C did"

Hence, C.

But is needed to show contrast. choice C is correct because of correct verb form.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:

X has happened, but y has also happened. Choices A, B and D eliminate the necessary verb. D does not provide for tense agreement as it uses the past tense. Choice C is the correct answer.
