Subj - 'one of the main provisions'
Verb - 'protect'

A & C are out on SV disagreement.
E - OUT. They cannot refer to insurance industry.
D - We're highlighting a provision, so we need to us 'as'. D is OUT. Like is used to show similarity.

Two points to look into

1) one of the PLURAL that VERB(PLURAL)
so verb here will be plural.. protect is correct

2) LIKE is used to show similarity in NOUN and AS in ACTION

ONLY B left

A risk corridor is one of the main provisions, albeit not the only one, that protects the insurance industry from hitting rock bottom, like it did earlier in the decade.

"that" modifies "provisions",so we need a plural verb; therefore, "protect" is correct instead of "protects".

A. protects the insurance industry from hitting rock bottom, like it did -Protects --> wrong; like --> wrong
B. protect the insurance industry from hitting rock bottom, as it did - Correct
C. protects the insurance industry from hitting rock bottom, as it did - Protects --> wrong
D. protect the insurance industry from hitting rock bottom, like - like --> wrong
E. protect the insurance industry from hitting rock bottom, like they did -like --> wrong

IMO B

A -- Verb agreement issue and usage of like
C--Verb agreement issue
D-- Usage of like
E-- Usage of like and pronoun issue.

Hi,

I was told from egmat that "one of the [PLURAL]" would be shown as singular and not plural.

I'm a bit confused now?

@chetan2u-I understand what you are saying, but how do we account for 'albeit the only one'? This comes before 'that'. Also, use of that should be without commas since it is an essential modifier. I think this is a poor quality question.

Hi KS15
Here 'albeit not the only one' acts as a noun-modifier. When 'that' is preceded by a comma pair with noun modifier, it is acceptable.

"One of the APPLES has been....." is correct usage
But one of the apples THAT, then the following verb needs to be plural, not singular.

I hope it helps!

This question demonstrates a nice trap by introducing descriptive phrase in between "...one of the PLURAL..." and "that ..."
