'D' it is.

A, B C - are out because of 'have' usage at the end. We are referring to 'descrimination' here so it should be 'has'.

(A - also fails in parallelism, C - also fails in parallelism)

D - Good.

E - uses 'has' at the end but can't form a parallel structure needed to
specify "wages paid in predominantly male occupations over the wages paid in predominantly female occupations".

Hi Vivek,
That is exactly what I thought and marked. But the OA is E. It doesnt sound right to me, i feel in E, the sentence just ends abruptly " over predominantly female" . Am not too sure if am missing something or if there is something wrong with the OA. Unfortunately, I do not have the OE as I took this from the 1000 SC question bank (#245)

Hi Gmatsoon...

I don't think OA is correct...there is clearly an issue with the choice 'E',
unless anybody here can convince us on 'E'!

In D over those that are predominantly is an awkwaed construction

in E over the predominantly female is mor concise

Unless the question is from the OG, we can safely say that the OA is wrong and just move on.
