Subject verb agreement

Iguanas have ... --> Iguanas : plural

POE: A,B and E go away

we have C and D
prized as game animals .. must be plural

D violates the subject verb agreement too


My answer is C

I agree with the reasoning. But I think you mixed up C and D.

C is the best answer.

Thanks guys, the OA is C. However, I was confused for a bit with the use of "the meat" which makes it seem like the game animal needs to be singular.

347. Iguanas have been an important food source in Latin America since prehistoric times, and it is still prized as a game animal by the campesinos, who typically cook the meat in a heavily spiced stew.
(A) it is still prized as a game animal
(B) it is still prized as game animals
(C) they are still prized as game animals
(D) they are still prized as being a game animal
(E) being still prized as a game animal


You need a 'they' to refer back to Iguanas. that leaves C & D. D seems wordy to me. hence settled for C.
