The subject is plural differences; hence, we need have as the verb. Ditch B, D and E, Between A and C, the relative pronoun which modifies European languages a) distorting the meaning and b) flouting touch rule. Therefore, A is the correct choice.

The "that" is referring to the semantic organization of European languages. So if I wanted to substitute the "that" out with what it was referring to, it would look like this:

Subject: striking differences (plural) = should have a plural verb - "have"

Eliminate B D and E

Parallelism: the semantic organization (singular) = should be parallel to the other element

Eliminate (C) because of "those"

We have (A)

3/2 split right in the beginning. Beautiful! Eliminate C/D/E, it's going to be A/B. Eliminate B on has or possibly the middle section. A is the answer!

i pick A. the semantic organization is singular so C, D and E are wrong. the differences is plural so B is wrong. by the way is it really a 700 level question??

Easy to point out IMO A.. has to be eliminated because of "differences" which leaves us with A & C, C is incorrect as "which" points to languages..

A grammar question:
If we had organization in a plural form could we use "those"?
