Agree with Mahesh. 'Surrounds' is linked to 'The patchwork...' which is a singular.

Answer is (B)

^ A ^

Firstly, we are referring to the green fields not the patchwork, so the verb should be plural "surround". Thus, B and E are out.

D is wrong because it says "bustle". However, it should refer to patchwork so we need "bustles". Also "many of which" cannot refer to workers.

C is wrong as "many of who" is not a correct usage.

A stands..

look the difference between a and b. "many of them in the area just for the season" is the modifying phrase where as in B "many of whom are in the area just for the season" is a clause (a clause has always S + V), which is wrong.....

A. In good years, the patchwork of green fields that (surround the San Joaquin Valley town bustles with farm workers, many of them) in the area just for the season.

B. In good years, the patchwork of green fields that (surrounds the San Joaquin Valley town bustles with farm workers, many of whom are) in the area just for the season.
