will go with D.
A & B make a mistake of using "have" for singular book.
"or" at the end of C and connecting that clauses by "and" in E seem to be wrong.

Stolyar

I think something cannot be VERY praised/applauded OR VERY criticize at the same time.

C will work for me.

Stolyar can get a ETS job, but he should know that "VERY" is not particularly preferred by ETS

Also, In long SC's, incorrect ETS sentences will have more than one error.

C is correct. The initial sentence is taken from a dictionary article discussing VERY. IMHO: Something CAN BE very praised OR very criticized at the same time (either praised or criticized). Something CANNOT BE very praised AND very criticized at the same time. So, the logic of the sentence seems OK.
