Would that be correct?

In Option [E] turns is not active, an active voice [E] would read - how frequently the inventory is turned over can be

if option D is : how frequently the inventory is turned over are often is incorrect - replacing can in the stimulus with are here would change the meaning entirely....i guess, that is a risk a test taker should not take when a correct option [E] is already making a perfect answer sense.

in A, B and C, how items are placed is not parallel with the frequency. Eliminate A, B and C.

In D, the structure how + to be + subject implies a question: how frequently IS the inventory turned over? To make a statement, the structure needs to be how + subject + verb, as in answer choice E: how frequently the inventory TURNS OVER. Eliminate D.
