E.
It should be NEITHER he NOR ANYONE else HAS...
1. As it's anyone (i.e. singular) therefore it should be HAS.
2. Neither-nor and either-or work hand in hand when needed.

Neither he nor anyone construction is correct construction, so A,B and D is eliminated.

Between C and E anyone/somone/sombody requires singular verb so has is correct construction. C have SV error.

E is correct answer.

KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



E

The differences between the answer choices are small, but important. First of all, which is better,“so com- plicated” or “of such complication”? The latter sounds less idiomatic, so you can cross out (D). Next, you should remember that “neither”is paired with “nor,” so you can cross out (B), which has the unid- iomatic “neither he and no one else.” Notice also that where we have the “neither . . .nor” construction, it's redundant to add the word “either.” This allows us to eliminate (A).With “neither ...nor,”the noun agrees withwhatfollows “nor.”“Anyone” is singular, so “have”in (C) is wrong.
