Economics, a social science first investigated by scholastics during the 14th century, involve studying the transfer, production, and expenditure of goods and services.

A. Economics, a social science first investigated by scholastics during the 14th century, involve studying the transfer, production
Economics singular, involve plural

B. Economics, a social science first investigated by scholastics during the 14th century, involves studying the transfer, producing
"transfer, producing and expenditure" - technically parallel because these are all nouns, but we need to use "production" instead of "producing"

Economics singular, involve plural

D. A social science first investigated by scholastics during the 14th century, economics involves studying the transfer, production

Economics is a singular subject and thus needs "involves".

A. Economics, a social science first investigated by scholastics during the 14th century, involve studying the transfer, production
Incorrect.

B. Economics, a social science first investigated by scholastics during the 14th century, involves studying the transfer, producing
Incorrect. Producing is not parallel to transfer and expenditure.

C. A social science that was first investigated by scholastics during the 14th century, economics involve studying the transfer, production
Incorrect.

D. A social science first investigated by scholastics during the 14th century, economics involves studying the transfer, production
Correct.

E. Economics, a social science first investigated by scholastics during the 14th century, study the transfer, production
Incorrect. Should be 'studies' or "refers to the study of...". Economics itself can not "study"!
