Looked to - means you are expecting something from the thing that you are 'looking to'. 'He looked to the skies for ...' or above SC question

Looked at - Is straightforward. Just looking at something. 'He looked at the skies to see the stars.

Pls correct me if I am missing something.

is vs are, we're just pointing to one communities -> cleveland
Between A and B, I'll take A. B suggests the waterfront is doing the work of improving quality of life.

C should be the answer.

need are as verb of that and that refers to either "a large number of communities" (or the Great Lakes). i am not sure. as per rules it should refer to the gr8 lakes but sometims the rule also has exceptions. so, anyway "that" is plural and need plural verb "are".

A/B wrong. D is also wrong because pronoun "it" has not clear referant. E is awakward.
