Is OA D) ?
since it talks about "sculpted pieces" , "include" should be the correct word to use here
between C,D,E i feel "amalgamated in " is wrong.

A is the answer. Explanation: Choice (B) is wrong in using ‘is’ instead of ‘are’ for a plural noun pieces. Choice (C) is idiomatically wrong in using ‘is on exhibition’. The correct usage is being exhibited. Choice (D) wrongly uses amalgamated with. In this context the correct use is amalgamated in. Choice (E) wrongly uses a plural verb ‘have’ for singular noun work. Choice (A) is the best option.

I marked A. not sure why the OA given is E. Isn't the subject "The work of Matizan" singular?
Can anyone explain this question
Thanks.

'Work of Matizan' seems singular.

Experts, Please advise..

There is certainly some problem with the OA. It should be A
The work of Matizan is singuar, hence we need includes and not include.

The work of Matizan that is being exhibited, includes sculpted pieces of furniture that are based on nature theories and are amalgamated in rough wood and metal.

• is being exhibited, includes sculpted pieces of furniture that arc based on nature theories and are amalgamated in
Correct
• is being exhibited, includes sculpted pieces of furniture that are based on nature theories and is amalgamated in
The pieces are amalgamated in rough wood and metal. Hence we need a plural "are amalgamated" and not "is amalgamated"
• is on exhibition, include sculpted pieces of furniture that are based on nature theories and are amalgamated in
The work of Matizan is singuar, hence we need includes and not include.
• is being exhibited, include sculpted pieces of furniture that are based on nature theories and are amalgamated with

Can a moderator or OP please change the answer? This question and incorrect answer pair does more harm than good for everyone else, even if you read the comments later (at the very least, it's very annoying and could waste time for those that want to try and figure it out before reading the comments).

Is that comma that is in all of the choices grammatically correct? Makes no sense to me. Sometimes it feels like one step forward, two or three steps back with some of these SC questions...especially the unsourced/unverified ones.

Meaning of the sentence - the work of Matizan which is currently being exhibited consists of furniture that are based on nature theories and these furnitures are amalgamated in rough wood and metal.

Let's split the sentence for simplicity. Also make the subject "bold" and "underline" the verb. The subject and it's verb is associated by same number in parenthesis.

The work of Matizan (1)
that (2) is being exhibited (2),
includes (1) sculpted pieces of furniture
that (3) are based (3) on nature theories and
are amalgamated (3) in rough wood and metal.

If you notice, all the subjects and their corresponding verbs are rightly matched.
The subject "work of Matizan" is singular and needs a singular verb "includes". Eliminate C,D and E.
In B, parallelism of verbs is disturbed - "are based on nature theories" and "is amalgamated" for the
same plural subject "sculpted pieces of furniture".

Answer: A

Includes will be correct as work will have Singlular verb. Option c,d,e out. Between option a and b- "a" is correct as it maintains "and are"



Kudos !!! if it helped

Answer: A



Should there not have been a "that ... and that .." parallelism in A. Or am I missing a trick ?
