In a struggle between B and C, I will choose B.

The only emotion the sentence talks about is anger, so I believe it should be "was" and not "were"

yeah another vote for singular - "anger" is the subject of the sentence. It should be "B"

Since 'Among the emotions' only one emotion is mentioned I would go with singular and hence 'B'

C looks good..


In C please observe "preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles to begin healing
" to begin healing is flawed

B it is the correct option

Ans is B
first we see a 3/2 split.

A, C and E are wrong because only one instance of emotion is cited thus 'were' is out.

Down to B and D,
D is too wordy.
B is clear and concise.

...bumping up.

B) was anger for repeatedly raising the issue and preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles from ever beginning to heal

What part of speech is the word, 'raising' as used in this context? A verb/adjective/gerund?

If a verb, I always thought that an adverb cannot come before the verb, in this case, one would say '...raising repeatedly' rather than '...repeatedly raising' as stated in (B).

Someone please help??!!!! :?

B is correct.


But among can come with singular or plural subjects.
Among all the students in high school were John, who did not do well in class, and Mike, who was an extemely talented student.
or
Among All the students in high school was john, who was an extemely talented student.


(A) were anger for repeatedly raising the issue over and over again and preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles from ever beginning to heal
- OUT word Redundancy - repeatedly and over and over again
(B) was anger for repeatedly raising the issue and preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles from ever beginning to heal
- keep this
(C) were anger over repeatedly raising the issue and preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles to begin healing
- OUT Not parallel, we need noun/adjective in the second compound subject. and moreover beginning to heal is correct for wounds...
(D) was anger about the issue, which was raised over and over, and preventing the wounds from earlier battles, still raw, to begin healing
- OUT totally weird.
(E) were anger about the issue, which was raised repeatedly, and preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles to begin to heal
- OUT to begin to heal seems to modify the battle, rather should be from beginning to heal as B says.

B

'was' is correct because there is only one emotion cited - 'anger'
D sounds awkward.

B for singular use

A, C and E can be eliminated because of the use of 'were'
D - not angry about the issue, but about having the issue raised over and over again.

the parallelism here is anger for V-ing and V-ing
the verb be must be singular as "anger" is singular.
So I choose B.

Btw, can anyone point out which preposition is used after anger/angry?!!Thanks in advance.

B.
verb "was" is required here to agree with the subject "anger". this eliminates A/C/E.
Bwtween B and D, anger about in D is incorrect idiom and anger for is correct one. also "which was raised over and over" is in passive mood and not correct expression..

I don't think there is any specific prep. that you need. These are the ones that came to my mind -
- Anger of God
- Anger for (as in this sentence)
- Anger without focus
