A as well.

"one" is singular so D and E are out.

B introduces a pronoun (they) that is incorrect. "one" is singular. Plus, it has "for buying" in the choice. You need the infinitive form of the verb here after "is expected to"

C does the same as B by including "them"

One more vote for A

Not one of plural noun + singular verb

BTW, if clause here is unreal condition clause, right?

Cheers

A because the other options such as B and C contains the word "them" when it shoudln't, and answers D and E uses are when the subject is singular.

A it is..

B : is....they
C : is...them
D : "deal was..." I guess, it sud be "deal were not to be"
E : "to be making an offer to buy" sounds ambigious.



OA/OE Plz.

I'm also with A.

Not one has to agree with is, so D and E are out.

In B, an offer for buying is wrong so we're left with A and C. In C, to be signed by them is an awkward construction so A it is.

OA please?

I would pick B.
Is " deal" a plural or uncountable noun??? How can A be correct?!
I think in B, offer( a noun) for buying is ok. Only when offer is a verb , to connect verb with verb, we use "to".

Another one for A.

In B, the use of was is incorrect. The subjunctive is needed: were.
