i would say this is not the point in this sentence....

A, B and C are worng because they have problems with references and logic....

EDIT: meant D is the only choice which clearly indicates the issue....

Or yeah.... sorry

I guess it means that the community by itself cannot have household incomes. It should rarther be income.....

Then we should use where because we refer to people in the community.... Just my thougths.....

(D) which has 49 percent of the household incomes
(E) in which 49 percent of them have household incomes

C is right. D implies that the communities have the incomes instead of the household having it.

(A) 'them' has no referent

(B) 'they' has no referent

(C) where 49 percent of the household incomes are

(D) which has 49 percent of the household incomes

(E) 'them' has no referent

Between C and D, I'll take C. 'which' in D modifies the noun community which is collective and does not has household incomes as one of it's components.
