Hm... I think perhaps this might be classified as an idiomatic part of English expression... "All things antique" just sounds more correct to me. Yes, I think the structure is Noun + Adj., which is strange in English, but people do say "I love all things Greek," etc. Sorry I can't explain that better.

Here in c and e "bring" is wrong as it refers to market which is singular .. so C and E are out
A out as "are" is not proper "Market" singular
Now out of B and C .
C is wordy .
things antique is correct . So B

E is wrong because both grown and bring appear to be happening at the same time...However bring has happening all the time there was growth...so should be in the continuous tense.....

On the contrary, I would say that IMO, has is the verb which is pointing to the noun America's fascination....

(D) antique things have grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that are bringing
(E) antique things has grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that bring

B is correct. My reasoning is as follows:

This is partly a modifier question, which modifies "Antique" and since "Antique" is a collective noun, it is singular and "has" is appropriate to use. Any comments are welcome.

IMO , there is no subject in D/E. if there was no "out of" then "America's fascination " would have been the subject as below

( America's fascination with all antique things - the subject) has grown a market....

Actually they are correct English.

- All thing [which are] antique ...
- I love all things [which are] Greek

[which are] is omitted in this case for short.

B is correct.
A- Are bringing is parallel with singular market.
C, E - Bring is not correct
D- are bringing is not parallel.

The sentence is inverted.

OBSERVE the Kernel Sentence:

Out of fascination has grown a market.

A market has grown out of fascination.


B is really the BEST choice.

A market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that is bringing back the chaise lounge, the overstuffed sofa, and the claw-footed bathtub has grown out of America's fascination with all things antique.

This is the actual flipped sentence. The subject is the singular -a market – and the verb therefore has to be -has grown-
What is/are bringing back the stated antiques? Logically It cannot be the furniture and fixtures nor the bygone styles nor all things because what are brought back are themselves antique furniture and fixtures of bygone styles and they cannot bring themselves. Something else must be bringing them. It is actually the fascination, as pointed out by some posters that is driving the renaissance of these styles. Hence the verb for the second part must also be singular, namely, is bringing as in B

in B, the oa, "which/that clause" modifie a far noun "market". this is acceptable.

but in the following why "which clause " modifying far noun is considered errors.

from #48 og 13

It is called a sea, but the landlocked Caspian is
actually the largest lake on Earthf whichcovers more
than four times the surface area of its closest rival in
size, North America's Lake Superior.
(A) It is called a sea, but the landlocked Caspian is
actually the largest lake on Earth, which covers
(B) Although it is called a sea, actually the
landlocked Caspian is the largest lake on Earth,
which covers
(C) Though called a sea, the landlocked Caspian is
actually the largest lake on Earth, covering
(D) Though called a sea but it actually is the largest
lake on Earth, the landlocked Caspian covers
(E) Despite being called a sea, the largest lake on
Earth is actually the landlocked Caspian, covering

so "which/that clause" modifying far noun is considered INFERIOR. This means we have to eliminate it if there is a better choice.

is my thinking correct?
