I would go with C

Just sounds better than 'did'

One more for B.

because "did" is in || with "live". Have and had require "lived", so A and C are out.

D and E are phrase.

Me too for B. D and E are out due to the continuous tense.
A and C are out since have and had require "lived".

"B"

Inflation has made many Americans reevaluate their assumptions about the future; they still expect to live better than their parents have, but not so well as they once thought they could.

(A) they still expect to live better than their parents have - TENSE!
(B) they still expect to live better than their parents did... hhmm .... sounds corr ....
(C) they still expect to live better than their parents had - i will choose "did" over "had" in this
(D) still expecting to live better than their parents had
(E) still expecting to live better than their parents did - expecting??

Lets ace together!!
