Whether none is plural or singular is a very disputable topic even among the grammar gurus, so GMAT will never test you on this.

It is definitely between A and D, and I'm pretty sure that the OA will be A.
However I believe that both A and D are perfectly acceptable.

A looks good. According to the Manhattan SC correction guide, None could be singular or plural. The key here is to look at the object of the "of" construction to determine the number of the subject. In this case, friends is plural so have goes with the friends
