Kaplan's answer is: D. :shock:

I picked B, because I thought that the phrase "that are/is bringing" modifies shows, and therefore the verb form should be plural ("are"). What do you guys think?

Interest .........other people's lives has grown a booming market for "reality" television shows that is bringing.

Only D is correct grammatically and maintains parallelism.

I agree with Paul. It is the reality shows that are bring people onto the screen, not the market.

I was stuck between B and E because definitely, the show brings people to TV not the market. OA pls

I agree with you all. I think that Kaplan is wrong in this case.
