a.=> perfect where modifies homes
b. electricity was in less than one percent of homes and lighting still => elec was in homes is wrong and lightning forms an independent clause which is wrong !!!
c. there were less than one percent of homes with electricity, where lighting was still being -> this is out where modifies electricity
d. there was less than one percent of homes that had electricity, having lighting that was still -> awkward having modifies eletricity
e. less than one percent of homes had electricity, where lighting had still been -> where modifies elec.

IMO A
Whats the OA ?
