C for me as we need a subordinate clause (that clause)

A- no subordination, i.e. "tonybee-------- of the modern balkans" is a complete clause/sentence; the second part" are apparent--- last book" is not connected well to the sentence: again this is a wrong structure.

the correct structure in this case should be

that tonybee was X and Y are apparent on every page of his book.

what i realise now that D could be the answere as clauses are always considered singular.

that tonybee was X and Y is apparent on every page of his book

as far asyour question regarding the subject is concerned, it is the whole clause(that tonybee------- modern balkans)

D for me. We need a singular verb, because "the fact" is omitted, in the sense that you could also say:
The fact That Toynbee was a scholar of Greece and Rome, with a preference for the former, and a close student of Byzantium and of the modern Balkans is apparent on every page of his last book.
.

This are my empirical rules
Hope it's correct

Definitely (D).

Subeject is a Noun Phrase (That Toynbee was a scholar of Greece and Rome, with a preference for the former, and a close student of Byzantium and of the modern Balkans ), which is always considered Singular (is).
