D seems to be structured best.

A distorts the meaning of the sentence because it does not have a good 'transition' word like 'that' in answer D. B C & E is redundant & wordy stating variations of the verb 'to include' twice in each sentence.

I think its B.
Communal eating and social facilities cannot be included with houses.

I take my statement back.
On reading it again, I found D to be correct.

I guess that's an indication that its time to go to sleep

We require a pronoun to modify houses ,so A ,C ,E are out.B gives the meaning that houses are called to include facilities whereas it may be a call to authorities to build house that include childcare and social facilities

D is best
