What is the source of OQ?

I think the array should be singular.
If you observe, all the answer choices started with 'an'.

Interesting question. Initially I thought 'an array of buoys' is singular so looked into B and D options ... but these two options don't look right to me.

then I decided 'an array of buoys' is plural .. so A fits here.

Please Post OA and OE for this one.

Array is a collective noun.
