I know that the correct answer is D, but is it because of the way the electromagnetic radiation acts when it leads to the emission of electrons for the photoelectric effect or is there another reason that supports the idea that light has particle-like properties?

I think it is D because of the behavior of the EMR that then leads to the emission of a particle. The idea that increasing the overall intensity of the light not leading to more electrons creates this idea that the light itself is acting as Einstein put it "packets of energy" as if it was acting as a wave increasing intensity would cause more electrons to be released due to the overall higher amount of energy present.
