### HideShow timer Statistics

After suffering \$2 billion in losses and 25,000 layoffs, the nationâ€™s semiconductor industry, which makes chips that run everything from computers and spy satellites to dishwashers, appears to have made a long-awaited recovery.
(A) computers and spy satellites to dishwashers, appears to have
(B) computers, spy satellites, and dishwashers, appears having
(C) computers, spy satellites, and dishwashers, appears that it has
(D) computers and spy satellites to dishwashers, appears that it has
(E) computers and spy satellites as well as dishwashers, appears to have

between A and D......

After [blah..] Nation's semiconductor industry .............appears to have
After [blah..] Nation's semiconductor industry .............appears that it has

I lean toward D (industry is singular) but OA is A. any explanations ?

Is it because of the idioms "appear to " and "appear that" ??

What if D has this : - "appears it has", is "that" necessary after appears ???

The "has" is still pulling me !

(A) is correct.

I believe
appears(singular verb) + to(infinitive) + have(auxilary verb, plural form)
is ok

Anandnk: Is what you mentioned a rule? For example is it
singular verb + infinitive + auxillary verb/plural form okay.
Can it be any singular verb or is it just applicable to to singular verb "appears"?
For example is the following corect:
- jumps (singular verb) + to (infinitive) + have (auxillary verb/plural form).[/b]

I believe it is A. The key here is "appear to" and "from..to".

Finally I have seen a query in my area of work - semiconductor industry. Yes..it is on the growth path now
