This sentence is a sample of Inversion. The subjects are " field hockey" and "volleyball"; therefore the verb is plural.
A. Verb is singular => Incorrect
C. Fragmented. Subject " volleyball" has no verb.
D. Fragmented. No verb
E. Verb is singular => Incorrect.

=> B.

Among the sports played primarily by women in the United States is field hockey, which is one of the most popular men's sports in South Asia, and volleyball, the sport of many male athletes in Europe and South America.

From the non underlined portion we see, hockey AND volleyball are referred. Hence the verb should be plural. Only answer choice B uses "are".

B) In the United States, among the sports played primarily by women are field hockey, one of

A) Among the sports played primarily by women in the United States is field hockey, which is one of the most popular men's sports in South Asia, and volleyball, the sport of many male athletes in Europe and South America.
Subject-Verb problem
B) In the United States, among the sports played primarily by women are field hockey, one of the most popular men's sports in South Asia, and volleyball, the sport of many male athletes in Europe and South America.
Correct
C) Played in the United States primarily by women, field hockey is among the most popular men's sports in South Asia, and volleyball, the sport of many male athletes in Europe and South America.
The construction of the sentence is wrong. "and volleyball" cannot be attached to the first part
D) Sports played primarily by women in the United States, including field hockey, one of the most popular men's sports in South Asia, and volleyball, the sport of many male athletes in Europe and South America.
"including" is not correct; and the second part "and volleyball" doesn't fit with the first one
E) One of the sports played in the United States primarily by women is field hockey, among the most popular men's sports in South Asia, and volleyball, the sport of many male athletes in Europe and South America.
Subject-Verb problem

Hey guys this probably a dumb question, but can someone explain me how you guys decided that "is field hockey" and "and volleyball" is the subject.
