It's between B & C....i will go for B: here infinitive form is required so "have" not "has".

Tricky question guys..

Idiom: Not only X but also Y.

Software .. will not only meet X, but also have Y.

Software will not only meet X
but also software will have Y

Software has Y. (Correct)
Software will has Y (Wrong) [Will and has not go together.]
Software will have Y (Correct)

Let's break it up :

Subject : The computer software -> singular
Participle that modifies the subject : being designed for a project studying Native American access to higher education
Verb : will meet | the needs of that study (object)
(not only but also)<- conjunction
Verb: has | the (compound object) versatility and power of facilitating similar research endeavors.

(A)

Thanks to all. OA is B
Rule that I found after getting this one wrong

should/would/could/should/will/can/may/might/ought never take singular verbs

Furthermore In A- unidiomatic power of use

there is a rule for inclusives 'not only....but also":
subject+verb+not only+(noun + but also+(noun
prepositional phrase) prepositional phrase)
like entities should be used together(noun with oun, adj with adj). All forms must be parallel, which means we should use 'have"
the CA is "b"

I agree that will does not take has. How ever, Why do we have to say that a will is implicit here?

The reason why I bring this up is because will is before not only and not after not only.

To make it more clear,

CS will not only meet X but also Y is different from CS not only will meet X but also will meet Y

Here we have the former and not the latter.

Here we have the former and not the latter.

The former has implied "will".....the later will require explicit "will".
The former can be re-written as "will not only meet x but also meet y".....this implies "will also meet y".

Whereas, ommiting "will" from the later will change the meaning of the sentence.

Some how I feel this is related to "tense". Anything planned for future "will have" rather than "has".
The software being designed "will have" certain features.

B

not only meets but also has would be a parallel structure
Likewise, it should be: not only meet but also have...

Hope this helps

I realized this after I shut down my laptop last night. The future use is what necessitates will.
