I chose A.

C changes the meaning to say that the act of "Developing television programs" is thriving rather than the "Television programs" are thriving. Developing televison programs cannot thrive...

I chose A.

Television programs -Plural. Therfore, use are.
I eliminated B and C based on that.
'But' is not required in D and E.

Hope, Iam right.

:oops i got "E". "C" was quite close but wrong because of usage of "as".

IMHO, "A" is worng because it says toy was prohibited by govt.

C is wrong because "developing television program" is not prohibited, its only the television programs are prohibited.

hi chunjuwu, nice to see gr8 questions from your side :)

Well "as" is wrong in choice "C" bcoz the main point is that federal regulations have prohibited "Developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys", correct ?
the subject of the choice "C" is okay however, "as" in "as once prohibited..." refers to the the procedure of "development", which is the subject of the sentence and you know "as" is not PRONOUN - it is always better to use "such programs" then to use "as" to refer something.

Please post OA.

bhai "B" is wrong bcoz the subject of the sentence "television programs" is PLURAL and "a practice that federal regulations once prohibited" is APPOSITIVE and it should be excluded from the sentence.

hope, this will help,

Dharmin

A. The "which" incorrectly modifies toys.

B. "is" should be "was"

C. "is" should be "was"

D. "they" is ambiguous.

E. This is the one.

Will go with E.

A - which is incorrect here
B/C - SV agreement violated. Televison programs are plural hence "is" is incorrect.
D - "they" is ambiguous here. Could refer to toys as well as programs.
E. - Best choice

I don't think that C shouldn't have "is". The "is" correctly refers to "developing" (the act of developing) and not developing television programs". But the use of "as" is incorrect. So E is the best answer.

OK, I picked E before looking at the answer and heres why:

A- is wrong because programs and was do not agree (Plural subject, singular verb)

B- is wrong because programs and is do not agree

C- is wrong because it changes the tense. You have developed vs developing, this happened in the past, therefor developed is correct

D- is wrong because the word they is confusing, who does they refer to?

E- is right because programs agree with are, and such programs makes it clear on what the writer is referring to.
