Agree with C. Since subject is plural, we need to use "lie" instead of "lies".

My answer is C

Tests subject-verb agreement but I think that an extra ‘that’ is missing for parallelism? cause it’s saying that ‘ v & w mean that x and that y?

Feel is about a 3/5.

I dont think we need "that" in C. "when" clause is part of a compound "that" clause - or, in other words, the meaning of the sentence commands that we should not have 2 "that" clauses

Very good question.

Thank you for your posts.

Here are the OA and Explanation - would be fantastic if you could post your feel for the difficulty of this question - let's just put on a level between 600 and 800 - that will of course vary by each test-taker but still:

Below 600
600-650
650-700
700-750
750+

OA: C


Since “That” refers to the plural noun “the asset bust and unwinding of debt”, plural verb “lie’ is correct as in C, D and E. “likely to be” in C and E is better than “likely to weakening” in A, “unlikely to” in B, and “likely be” in D.
“likely to be too weak to create jobs rapidly” in A is better than “likely to be too weak creating jobs rapidly” in E.

Therefore C is best.

Level 600

Compound subject needs plural verb

A & B out

D uses incorrect idiom

E does not use the infinitive

"lie",
"likely to verb",
and "too adj to infinitive" are all correct usage

+ 1 for C
