All answer choices are wrong. The non-underlined part of sentence reads 'selling their catch'. This means we are talking about fishermen and not some particular fisherman. singular fisherman cannot be right when plural 'their' is used in non-underlined part of sentence. check the answer choices.

That's what i was thinking; i searched the same question with different answer choices but then i thought may be there are two versions of the questions.

Thanks for the confirmation.

In many coastal New England towns, the fisherman still operates as they have for generations, displaying and selling their catch dockside at the end of each day.

A. the fisherman still operates as they have
B. the fisherman still operates as was done
C. fishermen still operate as they have done
D. the fisherman still operates as he has
E. fishermen still operate as they had


The correct answer is right in the middle
