A higher interest rate is only one of the factors, albeit an important one, that keeps the housing market from spiraling out of control, like it did earlier in the decade.

a) that keeps the housing market from spiraling out of control, like it did earlier in the decade.

b) that keep the housing market from spiraling out of control, as it did earlier in the decade

c) that keeps the housing market from spiraling out of control, as it did earlier in the decade

d) that keep the housing market from spiraling out of control, like earlier in the decade

e) that keep the housing market from spiraling out of control, like it did earlier in the decade

Can someone tell me why 'factors' is the subject of this sentence? I thought 'interest rate' is the subject of this sentence. this totally screwed up my subject-verb agreement.

BTW: Please don`t post the OA up front. Better to wait for some discussion by other club members...
