to has is incorrect.
to have is correct.

"have" is used as the infinitive form and not "has"

(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

what is the correct answer for this ,its given (A) ,whether it should be appears to has or appears to have

Thats fine.

Appears is main verb, which is in singular.
Have is helping verb and is in plural form. In fact the helping verb is always in plural from.

Did you ever see "x will has"? Never and thats always incorrect..

Therefore A is correct.

(A) computers and spy satellites to dishwashers, appears to have

(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

A is right IMO.

1. from X(computers and spy satellites) to Y(dishwashers) is right Idiom.
2. "appears to have" sounds better than other options

Since before the underlined part we have "from" a "to" must appear in the underlined part of the sentence to make it idiomatically correct.

Also it must be Industry...appears...to have(not that it has)...

IMO ....A

am confused here, what is wrong with D, I think D grammatically is right. "Appear that" is an idiom too, none of you provided an explanation why it is wrong.
??????? I think am missing something here

My Analysis is as follows, Omitting "which makes chips that run everything from computers and spy satellites to dishwashers" as it is optional in the sentence, we see a 3:1:1 split in the choices. "appears to have" is gramatically correct.Hence A and E remains. Comparing the two choices, A is clearly the better choice . _________________ Argument : If you love long trips, you love the GMAT.

from X to Y--idiom used in A,D
A is concise and clear(have---not used as helping verb)

Eliminate B, C , E. Second, Divide the sentence and find out the subject, it will help to check the verb agreement. After suffering$2 billion in losses and 25,000 layoffs, the nation’s semiconductor industry, which makes chips that run everything from computers and spy satellites to dishwashers, appears to have made a long-awaited recovery.

Here, Subject is semiconductor industry, i.e. singular, Verb will be appears not appear. can't eliminate any more option choice.

Now, verb 'appear' should be follow by 'to' for correct sentence construction. Between A & E, A have correct usage as 'appears to have'
