A. A recent study indicates that the powerful effects of random reinforcement, as evidenced by the multi-million dollar collectible card game industry, is no longer limited to casinos, test subjects and stock market investors
Subject-verb Problem

"as evidenced" AND "as indicated by a recent study" repeat the concept, making the sentence unclear.

Good one mate. +1 to you. I really like your approach of just not assessing one particular answer. As it is more important to know why other answer choices are incorrect than just knowing why 1 answer choice is correct. I pretty much work on same approach. I think it is the best way to ace SC - cos analyzing every answer choices gives us chance to know probable errors, hone our SC error identifying skills, and lastly we get doubly sure of our chosen answer...

Well done! :cool
