C is correct.
mostwantedjatt, C doesnt have who and mob cars. "and" is underlined and C makes the sentence as "who mob cars".

I'm confused about the usage of many of them children in option (C). In my opinion, the correct usage should be many of them are children.

1st point :- phenomena is plural and phenomenon is singular - here you need singular so , phenomenon
knowing that will narrow your choice to C
2nd point :- many of them who is a non-essential modifier and does not impact the sentence ,this can be used with without are in this particular sentence

Answer:C

OK, OA is C.
However I have a SVA issue. C says: A new phenomenon is waves??

Should not it be "are"???

Please clarify.
Thanks.

The subject is phenomena, which is singular. First rule of grammar: subject and verb have to agree. You don't say "The dog are small, brown, and furry." The working verb has to agree with the subject, regardless of the content of the rest of the sentence.

Phenomenon - singular

Phenomena - plural.

C usage is correct for 'is'

You may take off some mediator words(visible at Managua’s major intersections) and put it as to resolve your predicament on SVA :) .

(C)-It is the best answer because it maintains the grammatical rules. Here, 'A new phenomenon visible at Managua’s major intersections' is the subject of the sentence(heavy subject). 'Many of them' refers to the 'vendors and beggars'. Comparing other alternatives, I have picked this answer. Still the use of 'cars'(as a verb) is not clear.

Option c-- A new phenomenon visible at Managua’s major intersections is waves of vendors and beggars, many of them children, who

What i feel is the use of 'are' changes the meaning. The modifer 'who' modifies the vendors and beggars whereas if use 'are' who modifies the children only.

Please correct if i am wrong.

"Cars" is not a verb here....verb is "mob" and cars is an object of this verb.
