Constellation is singular. "it" for the correct S-V agreement.

(A)

I go with B.

"it" can refer to "South Pacific" or "Constellation" But "they" can refer only to "small islands".

Ans is A.

constellation is singular, so B and E are out.
we need a contradiction because the sentence starts with 'although'
C removes this contradiction with 'and'
D gives a double contradiction with nontheless

I am with A gang :lol:

IT IS -> refers to VAST CONSTELLATION (a group of islands) ... South Pacific can't be a home to languages... THE GROUP OF ISLANDS can!!!

THEY ARE -> yes, could refer to small islands, but aren't we talking about constellation?

that's my 2 cents... this is a tough question though

I am with A on this one :) as it is referring to the constellation.

B is wrong because "they" can refer to people, and then how can people be home to ......

and also if using "they", then you cannot have has in the clause before the comma :)
