"that" modifies "a market", a singular noun, so the verb after "that" must be singular. B is my choice.

Chose B

Looking at fascination, you should nitice that this is singular. So, we can eliminate A, and D
E didnt seem right
Between B and C...we shlould continue using the singular, so choose B

OA is B

Explanation:
Spot the Error ( to learn more about the common error types and how to spot them):

The presence of underlined verbs indicate that verbs are being tested. The presence of have grown and "are" points to verbs being tested in this sentence.

Rule and Fix:
A verb must agree with the noun that is refers to and must use the appropriate tense. The verb "have grown" should agree with fascination and the verb "are" should agree with "market", neither do.

POE:
A and D should be eliminated because of "have grown" and C should be eliminated because of "are."

Chunk and Compare:
Compare B and E.
B uses "resulting," which is both singular and plural and E uses "result," which is plural (and thus does not agree with "a market." Eliminate E.

Choose B
