(A) it becomes more frequent to have parents who both earn substantial incomes : Common is better expression than frequent in this meaning. 'Who' is not required.

(B) it becomes more frequent to have parents both earning substantial incomes : Common is better expression than frequent in this meaning.

(C) it becomes more common that both parents should be earning substantial incomes : Between C & D, I prefer D for clear meaning.

(D) it becomes more common for both parents to earn substantial incomes : Correct

(E) couples in which both of the parents earning substantial incomes become more common : meaning error.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



You should first decide whether to use the word ‘frequent’ or ‘common’. ‘Common’ is correct here. The use of ‘should’ in C is incorrect. The phrase ‘couples in which’ in E is incorrect. ‘Earning’ in E is also incorrect. E also incorrectly implies that the couples become more common. Choice D is the correct answer.
