The public's widespread belief in the existence of UFOs and their general curiosity about extraterrestrial life has generated considerable interest in science fiction.
A. UFOs and their general curiosity about extraterrestrial life has
B. UFOs and they are generally curious about extraterrestrial life which has
C. UFOs, as well as their general curiosity about extraterrestrial life, have
D. UFOs, as well as its general curiosity about extraterrestrial life, has
E. UFOs, as well as general curiosity about extraterrestrial life, have
Since it is about public's interest in UFO and its curiosity about extraterrestial life, the verb " has" should be have, so the ans is between C and E. But in C their refrers to the public, which IMO is singular. SO going with E
D it is
A) ambiguous "their"
B) "their" refers to a singular noun "belief" and is wrong
In C and E, what is between the commas is a the parenthetical element (starting with "as well as") and can be safely removed so that a singular verb "has" remains. _________________
