Discrimination is singular, and so A, B, and C are out due to the wrong use of "have".

Between D and E, I vote for D, since "favor X over Y" sounds better than "paid in X over Y".

I pick D!
We need has as discrimination is singular.
So its between D and E
E has a flawed comparison between male occupations and female

E.

the subject is "discrimination" so we need singular verb "has" over plural verb "has". it eliminates ABC.

between D and E, E is better because in D "that" refer to wages but actually "that" should refer to "discrimination". so it is flawed and remins E.

first first that doesnot refer to discrimination. ok, even we agree with what you said, the sentence is not ll. look the difference:

the comparision is between "predominantly male occupations" (it is profession) with "predominantly female" (this is noun/person). so it is absolutly wrong.
