appears to have is correct idiom & tense

A it is

I have the following from my error log, if this helps

--------------
the verb "to have" is in the infinitive tense. So "appears to have" is correct. If we were saying that the industry "has" made a comeback, then "has" and not "have" would be correct.

Straight A.
"appears to have" is correct usage.
Also,
since it is mentioned "run everything from ", " computers and spy satellites to dishwashers " should be used to show a range of products.

Agree with A, "appears to have" is the correct idiom

However, can someone explain to me further why an infinitive is needed after the word "appears" and not "that"

Thanks in advance!

Straight A. The other choices -but E- display non idiomatic uses of the verb appear. However, the linked nouns in E lack the preposition "to" that "from", in the non-underlined portion of the stem, requires.
