OA is A...But "Group of Students" should go with the singular verb....but in A why the verb form is 'have'?

"who" as well as "which" modifies the closest noun to it ...so in this sentence, "who have ...." is correct

D

A group of students - believe
A student group - believes

"needs to be not redesigned, but to be restored" is the only one that reads right.

Yes A

Collective noun Group is singular.

Group of students .... believes

not to be ... but to be ...

I agree with OG as "A" but not because it is right but because it is least wrong
From answer choices it is obvious subject verb agreement type question
Sentence begins with "A group of students who have" so I think even though we are talking about a group we are not treating it as singular. So shouldn't the sentence use has instead have ?

I had to go for A because of parallel constructions "not to be X but to be Y"
