C for me too

as the catch for me was the one of the many aspects, so it needed a singular verb "is"

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 .

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.

A. The global-warming effect of ocean white caps are one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into computer models used for predicting => Out effect is singular !!! are does not go well
B. The effect on global warming of ocean white caps are one of the many aspects of the ocean environment not yet incorporated in any detail into computer models, which they use to predict => OUT same as above
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 => HOLD THIS
D. That ocean white caps have an effect on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment not yet having been incorportated in any detail into the computer models that are used for predicting.-> HOLD THIS
E. That ocean white caps have an effect on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment not yet being incorporated in any detail into computer models, which they use to predict. => THEY ???? out

Good SC

Between C and D

I go for D!! i think comp models that are used for predicting is better
again that ocean white caps have an effect is better than
C i m stiill coinfused ,looking forward to getting OA

E. That ocean white caps have an effect on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment not yet being incorporated in any detail into computer models, which they use to predict.

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.

SO I think it's C

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>
