Affect is a "verb" which means to influence something
Effect is a "noun" which means result or something that was influenced

In the stem -The temporary closure of the library will effect local patrons. "Effect" is incorrectly used as a verb

Hence the correct option D rectifies this by replacing it with "Affect"
