I still don't get it.

"those" refers to movie set designs or recognition itself? If "those" indeed refers to designs, the sentence will be-
Although William Pereira first gained national recognition for his movie set designs, including designs for the 1942 film “Reap the Wild Wind,...

Doesn't it seem odd? Or is it just me?

It may be noted here that 'set' is an adjective for the plural noun 'designs'. Therefore, 'that' has no reference. The singular ' that' cannot stand for the plural designs.
'That' as a subordinate conjunction can stand as the connector for the following clause, in which case it can take both singular or plural things.
Example: Retail sales rose 8/10 of 1 percent in August, intensifying expectations that personal spending in the July-September quarter more than doubled
Here you can see that 'those' doesn't gel in spite of the plural 'expectations'. The take away is: if there is a clause after 'that', do not bother about using 'that'

P.S; Are you sure 'those ' as in A is incorrect?


Not sure daagh sir, the OA says so. :(

a. including those for the 1942 film “Reap the Wild Wind,” future generations will
b. like those for the 1942 film “Reap the Wild Wind,” future generations
c. like that for the 1942 film “Reap the Wild Wind,” future generations will
d. including that for the 1942 film “Reap the Wild Wind,” future generations will
e. including those for the 1942 film “Reap the Wild Wind,” future generations


Future generations cannot remember him now so we need ‘will’. So B and E are out!
We cannot use like to introduce an example so C is Out!
‘That’ cannot refer to plural designs so ‘D’ is out.

A is the answer - ‘those’ refers to designs and the adverbial phrase is correctly giving us an example about the designs he got recognition for.
