Options A, B, and C are out because of the usage of "are" and "have".

Between options D & E, it boils down to these two words - "Affect" and "Effect".

"Affect" -- To make an impact. Ex. "His bad preparation will affect his GMAT score."
"Effect" -- Result of an action. Ex. "Effect of his bad preparation was visible in GMAT score."

Thus, with the intended meaning of the stimulus, option E is right.
