MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:

This is simply a question of ambiguity. Choices A, B and C all imply that the suburbs have some degree of independence, and not the teenagers. The teenagers are the ones who have the independence. Choice D has an incorrect verb, ‘are’. Choice E is the correct answer.
