Since John Locke acknowledged authorship of his political works only in a codicil to his will, the period during which the Second Treatise on Government was written has been established through a close analysis of Locke's reported activities near the time of publication; however, because no original manuscript has been found, what is much more difficult to determine are the personal reason Locke wrote the Treatise, the changes he might have made to his first version, and the extent to which the published version coheres with Locke's intentions.

a. has been established through a close analysis of Locke's reported activities near the time of publication; however, because no original manuscript has been found, what is much more difficult to determine are

b. has been established through a close analysis of Locke's reported activities near the time of publication; however, because no original manuscript has been found, what is much more difficult to determine is

c. have been established through a close analysis of Locke's reported activities near the time of publication; however, because no original manuscript has been found, what is much more difficult to determine is

d. have been established through a close analysis of Locke's reported activities near the time of publication; however, because no original manuscript has been found, what is much more difficult to determine are

e. are established through a close analysis of Locke's reported activities near the time of publication; however, because no original manuscript has been found, that which is much more difficult to determine is

This one is throwing me for a loop. What does the crowd think?

Between A and B.

determine is or determine are.

Typically most courses tell you to inverse the subject here and pick "are".
I believe that " what is much more difficult to determine" can be treated as
the thing (that is much more difficult to determine) is the reason. I believe I read
this from one of the OG answer choices or in another discussion, I can check my log.

Therefore, "what is much more difficult to determine is A, B & C." is correct usage.

Hence B.
