B) is wrong because "clustered suburban houses" cannot include something...

C) is wrong for the same reason as above

ob gave a good explanation here. Only D has the right form. X calls for Y and Z, each one being nouns. For instance, you will not "call for X to..." but you will "call for X" period.

Charlotte Parkins Gilman, a late nineteenth-century feminist, called for urban apartment houses that included child-care facilities and for clustered suburban houses with communal eating and social facilities

In bold are the two nouns required for the idiom to stand. The rest in red are just modifiers to the respective nouns. The first is a restrictive clause and the second is a prepositional phrase. A is also good by enumerating two nouns but has present participle which is not preferred because it is a continuous tense implying an ongoing action.

I feel that A is wrong for a this reason: "Someone called for X including Y" implies that Y is a part or subset of X, which is not the case here and hence incorrect.

What do you guys say??
