Analysis:

aircraft engine(S) .... has been hailed (V)
The newly launched ( modifies ) AE
AE is also being modified by a list that presents its merits and/or why it has been hailed .
The intended list is : 50% reduction in noise & double-digit improvements
Now the double-digit improvements is also being described through a sublist : fuel efficiency & environmental emissions

Option A: Incorrect The list and the sublist are stated in a wrong way . As per this choice a 50% reduction in noise ll double-digit improvements in fuel efficiency notll environmental emissions , as then it means that the AE has been hailed for providing environmental emissions--- not the intended meaning.
Option B: Incorrect Similar issue with the lists and their intended meaning as in option A.
Option C: Incorrect We have Subject-Verb Agreement issue. As per the current construction the verb has been hailed has no Subject.

Option D: Correct correct option as per the analysis above.

Option E: Incorrect Having been hailed now is not connected to the subject AE and also not acting as a verb. Moreover, it is now modifying emissions ... which is not correct. As per the current structure there is an issue with the intended meaning .
