(A) but also has the versatility and power of facilitating
(B) but also have the versatility and power to facilitate
(C) but it also has the versatility and power to facilitate
(D) and also have the versatility and power of facilitating
(E) and it also has such versatility and power that it can facilitate

I pick the answer choice "A" based on the grounds that computer software is singular but the source shows different answer can some body throw light on this ?

GREEN:Prep-phrase BLUE:Subject RED:Verb

Clause1: The computer software being designed for a project studying Native American access to higher education will not only meet the needs of that study,
Clause2: but also has the versatility and power of facilitating similar research endeavors.

The subject in the second clause is "versatility and power" so we need have.

A:wrong. Has is singular.
B:Correct
C:wrong.it is ambiguous can refer to study or software.
D: wrong. need "but" to go with "not only"
E:wrong. need "but" to go with "not only"

This sentence is on parallelism. We can omit the common words when listing the elements of a list:

Here, "will not only meet the needs of that study, but also has the versatility and power of facilitating similar research endeavors.
The underlined portions are supposed to be parallel.

Since the first part is in future, the second should also be in future tense. We have just omitted the " will" in the second part, so the verb tense invisible is "it will have" thus B

(A) but also has the versatility and power of facilitating has is singular, also power of facilitating is an incorrect idiom, ---incorrect
(B) but also have the versatility and power to facilitatecorrect
(C) but it also has the versatility and power to facilitate out because there is no parallelism & has is singular
(D) and also have the versatility and power of facilitating fail because of incorrect parallelism & incorrect idiom
(E) and it also has such versatility and power that it can facilitate fail because of parallelism & has is incorrect

Subject-verb agreement
meet is used for plural subjects
meets is used for singular subjects
She meets her...
They meet her...

Parallelism
not only x, but also y

Trembling between A and B, marked A. We can not say B sounds better to us. Per rules A is the optimal solution. Computer software SINGULAR and Paralellism both are followed.

B for me.

The computer software being designed for a project studying Native American access to higher education will not only meet the needs of that study, but also has the versatility and power of facilitating similar research endeavors.
(A) but also has the versatility and power of facilitating
(B) but also have the versatility and power to facilitate
(C) but it also has the versatility and power to facilitate
(D) and also have the versatility and power of facilitating
(E) and it also has such versatility and power that it can facilitate

A. versatility and ...facilitating --> wrong ||sms
B. and also have --> uses correct verb (sing) and versatility and ...facilitate --> correct ||sms. Best Answer.
C. but it also have ---> wordy
D. versatility and ...facilitating -> wrong ||sms
E. and it also has --> wrong tense used as "software being designed" do not agree with has.

We need 'have' because the sentence is all about future tense. Also B follows parallelism i.e. Will not only meet...... but also have the versatility.

Can anyone explain me wether the First clause "The computer software........ that study" is a dependent clause or independent clause. Thanks in advance

A tip for all those stuck between A & B ...

The computer software being designed for a project studying Native American access to higher education will not only meet the needs of that study, but also has the versatility and power of facilitating similar research endeavors.
(A) but also has the versatility and power of facilitating
(B) but also have the versatility and power to facilitate

Remove not only ... but also from the construction.
==>
The software will meet the needs and have the versatility...

The same rule can be applied for any not only...but also constructions

Hope that helps.

(E) and it also has such versatility and power that it can facilitate

"The computer software being designed for a project studying Native American access to higher education will not only meet the needs of that study, but also has the versatility and power of facilitating similar research endeavours."

Here,the clue is "MEET" which is plural verb used for a plural subject "Software"

The verb here is not meet, but will meet, which may either be singular or plural. Therefore we cannot base our analysis on subject verb agreement in this case.

The second verb is will have (the helping verb will is omitted by virtue of parallelism - .....will not only X, but also Y)

Is the 'will' in a 'Not only X but also' structure that express a future expectation/ possibility (or simply uses a future tense), always optional? Or is there some exception in this case?

"Will" is not optional. It is mandatory when a simple future tense is required.

If "will" is inside the parallel structure, then it must be repeated:
...not only will meet, but also will have

If "will" is outside the parallel structure, then it must not be repeated:
...will not only meet, but also have.

(A) but also has the versatility and power of facilitating
(B) but also have the versatility and power to facilitate ==> not only meet ..... but also have => I chose have because "and" [versatility and power]
(C) but it also has the versatility and power to facilitate
(D) and also have the versatility and power of facilitating
(E) and it also has such versatility and power that it can facilitate idiom not only but also and parallelism to higher to facilitate

After removing the fluff I can think of only two things in the sentence:
1. Idiom => not only but also
2. Parallelism => to higher to facilitate
Please correct me if i am wrong.

I also made the error by running out of time and selected incorrect option.
