I posted this before. Now after reviewing it, I can clearly see why C is the answer.

"and mob cars at the stoplights."

Children should be right before this last part b/c it modifies children and children are the ones who mob the cars.

Everything else is illogical. the phenomen doesnt mob the cars! The managus intersections dont mob the cars. This leaves us A and C.

A however is still ambiguous and sounds as if phenomen is the culprit that mobs the cars.

Just thought id post my assessment.

OK, OA is C.
However I have a SVA issue. C says: A new phenomenon is waves??

Should not it be "are"???

Thanks.

The subject is phenomena, which is singular. First rule of grammar: subject and verb have to agree. You don't say "The dog are small, brown, and furry." The working verb has to agree with the subject, regardless of the content of the rest of the sentence.

Phenomena is a Plural noun hence which is wrong in A.

what is new phenomena in option B is not at all clear.

C looks correct keep it

Phenomenally is a adverb used to modify noun waves - incorrect usage.

E is wordy and awkward

a new phenomenon is subject with its verb is and then phrase and then a new clause start with who as subject which refer to children but there is no verb for who so how can this choice is correct and what's wrong with option "a"

Option C: The verb for "who" is "mob".

Option A: "A phenomena" is wrong - should be "a phenomenon". Moreover, even if you ignore the article "a" and consider the subject plural, the verb inside the clause "which IS visible" is wrong because "which" now refers to a plural noun and hence "which ARE visible" should be used.

You do not need "is" for simple present present.
Beggars beg ( NOT beggars is beg.)
Similarly,
Beggars mob ( NOT beggars is mob).

The simplified structure is:
A new phenomenon is waves of beggars who mob cars.
