OA is B.

I think "anger for"="Anger because of"= "anger as a result of" . I don't see any problem with this structure.

The sentence mainly talks about the 'Anger' among all the emotions, so 'was' should come as 'Anger' is singular.
This takes us to (B) and (D)
And (D) is not parallel (issue, which was raised .... and preventing ) so (B) is correct (repeatedly raising ... and preventing ....)

B. Anger is the subject hence it needs the singular, "was". And the anger came from "repeatedly raisING the issue" and "PreventING old wounds from healing" parallelism.

IMO 'B'

(1) was vs were-> tilt the sentence-> Anger was/were among the emotions ->clearly 'was'

(2) Between 'B' and 'D'
In 'D'
-> the issue, which was raised over and over,
->wounds from earlier battles, still raw,
wordy and awkward

What does this sentence really convey? - Was the anger over the "issue" or over "repeatedly raising the issue".

These were the notes i went through on this question

36. Among the emotions on display in the negotiating room were anger for repeatedly raising the issue over and over again and preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles from ever beginning to heal.

(A) were anger for repeatedly raising the issue over and over again and preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles from ever beginning to heal - see E
(B) was anger for repeatedly raising the issue and preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles from ever beginning to heal

anger for repeatedly raising the issue and preventing .... shows parallelism. Additionally, the original meaning of the sentence conveyed that the people in the negotiating room were angry over an issue being repeatedly raised. D changes the meaning of the sentence to make the anger about the issue.

(C) were anger over repeatedly raising the issue and preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles to begin healing - see E
(D) was anger about the issue, which was raised over and over, and preventing the wounds from earlier battles, still raw, to begin healing

if you rephrase this, the sentence reads was anger about the issue .... and preventing the wounds from earlier battles.... to begin healing

(E) were anger about the issue, which was raised repeatedly, and preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles to begin to heal - Think of it as saying one of the emotions on display was anger

I concluded B.
Among the needs singular verb. And anger is on repeatedly bringing the issue not on the issue per se. So B

+1 B

We are talking about anger (singular): A, D and E are out.
C is not parallel: "preventing" requires another gerund.

Anger" is the subject, so "was" is the correct verb.

As noted in OA, B is correct.

The subject here is only one among the emotions, namely anger... hence it is singular which requires 'was'

i pick B "raising" and "preventing" are logically and grammatically paralleled. the subject of the sentence is the anger. A, E and C are out for SV does not match. D is just awkward and wordy. correct me if i am wrong
