Inspiration is used as a modifier here. Hence, the noun "inspiration" becomes inspirational.

Not an expert but my take on this question is as follows
"effect" is a noun and a noun can only be modified by an adjective.
inspiration is a noun while inspirational is an adjective.
In the given answer choice only D uses inspirational as an adjective

Good teamwork on the sports field, or in an office, can sometimes have an inspiration effect.
1. Inspiration is a noun and inspirational is an adjective
2. Here we need inspiration as an adjective that can modify effect.

A) can sometimes have an inspiration effect//Wrong because of reason stated//
B) can sometimes have an effect that is very inspiring// wordy//
C) sometimes can have an inspiration effect// same as A//
D) can have an inspirational effect, at times// correct: Inspirational is acting as an adjective//
E) can sometimes affect an inspiration// Meaning changes//

Hope this helps...
