105. Anger: singular
D: not parallel.

B is best

145

Idiom: believe to be.
Do not need THAT following ONE.

E is best.

"Among the emotions" always call for plural.

106: E

B. Inversion.

Since the subject is "anger", the verb should be singular - was.

As only emotion anger is discussed singular "was" is necessary. So will go with B

concerning "astronomers": we have the idiom "believe X to be Y"
So variant B also possible: believe it to be a type ....

What is wrong?

105: B
D changes the meaning and the gerund requires parallelism.

145: E
C is wordy.

To clarify the doubt on inverted sentence as mentioned earlier

----" Among a group of things " one thing is asked making it singular
-----This is an inverted subject-verb sentence. Reverse it: "Anger was among the emotions on display..."

i have checked this question from 1000 SC #107 .... Here in non-underlined part as mentioned below "were" is used with "high cost of land" ....
I feel it is the same case as mentioned earlier.
Correct me if i m missing smthing

107. Among the reasons for the decline of New England agriculture in the last three decades were the high cost of land, the pressure of housing and commercial development, and basing a marketing and distribution system on importing produce from Florida and California.
