Please explain :-)


It's clear

all that with THEIR lack of coherence: singular VS plural; so A B D out

between C and E: which are his : verb plural , his singular......wrong

Answer is E


I agree with your answer, but I do not with your reasoning.

which are his: verb plural , his singular is not wrong per se.
Ex.- Tom went for a walk in the park with Roque and Ramon, which are his pets.

None of the answers are convincing,

E when replaced: The standard Frances Hodgson Burnett plot is one in which a disadvantaged person, often a child, is resotred to the wealth and position of his natural birthright.
Sentence sounds weird

C makes sense, but as noboru said comma or a prep should accompany it.

Source??? any Clue, I think the author would have left long back :-)

I do not get what the problem is.
We are talking about some things, and that is plural. But we are talking about one disadvantaged person.... singular....
just like:
We are looking for a computer, a printer and an ink cartridge which are his things....
