The first one is correct "UFOs, as well as its general curiosity about extraterresterial life, has "
What is being tested here is additive phrases. As well as is an additive phrase however note that all additive phrases will not join 2 nouns into a compound plural thus the reason why UFOs and its general curiosity is followed by "has" not "have"

Because Kaplan sucks

I suggest you get Manhattan GMAT's Sentence Correction Guide. It will do you wonders.
