I pick D too..

You have an adj+noun combination of series...

D fits the most.

B is correct but not precise.. The author could write an economy that is sluggish and a stretch of weather that is bad..

So B is INCORRECT.

if b would have been written as:

"and the chilling effect of persistent terrorist activity"

i guess, that would have been right.

[quote="macca"]Europeâ€™s travel industry is suffering as a result of a sluggish economy, a stretch of bad weather, as well as the chilling effects of terrorist activity that is persistent.

(A) as well as the chilling effects of terrorist activity that is persistent
- Unclear as to whether it is chilling effects or terrorist activity that is persistent

(B) and the chilling effect of terrorist activity that is persistent
- Same as A

(C) but persistent terrorist activity has had a chilling effect too
- To maintain parallelism, should be "and", not "but"

(E) as well as the chilling effects of terrorist activity that persists
- "that persists" is awkward

<b>D</b> it is.

Europeâ€™s travel industry is suffering as a result of a sluggish economy, a stretch of bad weather, as well as the chilling effects of terrorist activity that is persistent.

(A) as well as the chilling effects of terrorist activity that is persistent
(B) and the chilling effect of terrorist activity that is persistent
(C) but persistent terrorist activity has had a chilling effect too
(D) and the chilling effects of persistent terrorist activity
(E) as well as the chilling effects of terrorist activity that persists

I think the explaination for eliminating B would be that it sounds like the meaning is like this:
Among all the terrorist activities, only those that are persistent have a chilling effect and are a reason for the economy to suffer.
