Answer should be D.

Choice D maintains parallelism with the first part of the sentence (the independent clause; i.e., was keenly aware... and was envious...). Ending the sentence with 'had' is in the proper form for comparison with the first part of the sentence (i.e., and was envious of her male contemporaries who had not enjoyed the advantages of an Oxford or Cambridge education).

Virginia Woolf was keenly aware that she had not enjoyed the advantages of an Oxford or Cambridge education, and was envious of her male contemporaries who did.

Rule: Two independent clauses must be joined using comma+FANBOYS.

The sentence basically describes about a girl who did not enjoy the advantages of an Oxford or Cambridge education and who was envious of her male contemporaries who did. IMO the correct choice should have "male contemporaries who did." because it describes the event that happened in the past.

A) and was envious of her male contemporaries who did -not an IC. subject is missing
B) and she was envious of her male contemporaries who did
C) she was envious of her male contemporaries who had
D) and was envious of her male contemporaries who had- not an IC. subject is missing
E) having envied her male contemporaries who did

I believe it's D. If it is expressed in past perfect that she didn't enjoy the same tense goes for her friends too

You cant join two sentences using a comma. You need to use a semi-colon. That is the problem with B. Hence according to me B is incorrect. As far as you comment on A and D goes parallelism does not require you to repeat the subject.

The subject is there: Virginia Woolf.

Virginia Woolf (a) was aware and (b) was envious...

Usage of had is incorrect as had is used to indicate possession,correct and is b as it follows the rule of FANBOYS

Hi Vishnu, had in this sentence, is used as an indicator of past perfect tense and not to indicate possession.
