Option A - incorrect
This option doesn't show subject and verb agreement. The subject of the sentence 'demand' is singular and it is supposed to take a singular verb 'has' not 'have.'

Option B - incorrect
This sentence is too wordy even though it explains the intended meaning in a less satisfying manner.

Option C - incorrect
This uses the plural verb 'have' to modify the singular subject 'demand' which is not correct.

Option D - correct
The subject 'demand' agrees with the verb 'has' to explain the intended meaning of the sentence.

Option E - incorrect
The sentence is written as a fragment. It doesn't have a verb modifier for the subject.
