Definitely C .

Explanation :

The effect of ocean white caps on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used to predict

"the effect" requires a singular verb - is .

"that " refers to "many aspects" and requires a plural verb - are .

Why C is correct [#permalink] New post 08 Oct 2006, 15:20
The subject of the Sentence is " The effect of ocean white caps on global warming" which in singular whereas the verb "are" is plural. Then how come C is correct. Can someone explain how C is correct.

C for me
'global warming effect is singular' hence 'is' is needed, so A and B are out
D and E are just plain incorrect.
so C it is.

While searching for posts for this question I came across a brilliant post by Ron on another forum ...Sharing the same


If you are confused regarding one of the + plural+ verb rules please follow the post.

http://www.beatthegmat.com/one-of-the-t40356.html#174075

Both the options A and C use the correct verb form ARE

C) The effect of ocean white caps on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used to predict.

1. One of the Xs that/who <plural Verb>
2. One of the Xs <singular verb>
3. only One of the Xs that/who <plural>
4. The only One of the Xs that/who <singular>


Thnkx Ron :)
