Source of above problem is unknown. I came across it on facebook group. If this does not fit to the forum rules then please remove the post.
Answer provided was-- D. But I disagree with it. I feel answer is A because 'one of the factors' is singular and hence it should use 'seems'. I request experts please advice on this.

I could be wrong but doesnt "that" modify factors which is plural. Hence D works ?

moul "One of Xs that/who" takes on plural verb forms. "One of Xs" takes on singular forms. Therefore, A is definitely incorrect; factors that seems should be "seem".

IMO D ;
inflation is one of the factors that seem to indicate that an economy ; "inflation is amongst many other things it means" and seem is correct verb singular with inflation

Are you sure about the "One of Xs" takes on singular forms??

Important point.

1. One of the Xs that/who <plural>
2. One of the Xs <singular>

Hence D is the correct answer. As it requires a plural verb seem.
