a. 1
b. 2
c. 3
d. 4
e. 5

Replace 'have' with 'has'.

'More than one' is always followed by singular noun and singular verb.

The correct sentence should be: More than one student has taken the interview for this company.

e.g. More than one room is vacant.

Note that, in case of, 'More + plural noun + than one', verb is also plural.

e.g. More students than one are late.
