    IS the answer B because friends is plural and have (I think) is also plural

    You both are correct.

    I see agreement errors in all four sentences.

    A. Elena thinks = agreement
    five dollars are = ??

    B. number...have bought (s/pl) [NOTE THAT "FRIENDS" IS NOT THE SUBJECT OF THIS SENTENCE!!]

    C. Each...go (s/pl)

    D. friend...are going (s/pl)

    So there are errors in all four sentences.

    =(
