subject verb agreement - should be 'was'

that leaves us with only B and D

B is more concise and clear - parallel in the X and Y

B because "was" should be used, refers to "anger" which is just one among many emotions hence singular.

This is a nice SC.
First I chose C then I realized that C has some issues.
B should be the answer.

This SC is testing three important things:

1. Verb "was"
2. Redundancy... "repeatedly" should not be used with "over and over again"
3. Idiom....Preventing X from Y

B satisfies all these.

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

what is " inversion"


Inversion means inverting the sequence of Subject and Verb. Usually, in any sentence the verb FOLLOWS the subject. However in some cases, the sentence structure is inverted and the subject FOLLOWS the verb

1. Verb "was" (Subject Verb ... AMONG the emotions WAS .. it's a complex issue to pick up the right verb here because the subject does appear Plural (raising the issue AND preventing the wound ... BUT remember that the SUBJECT is singular ANGER hence it requires singular verb WAS)

2. Redundancy... "repeatedly" should not be used with "over and over again"
3. Idiom....Preventing X from Y

To add a 4th one ..
4. Parallelism (raising....preventing)


B satisfies all these.

nice. Among the emotions on display in the negotiating room is an adverbial modifier i believe. Therefore, the subject is anger and not emotions.

Straight B

Among the emotions ... was anger

Anger is singular, not plural. Hence B/D.

D lacks parallelism.

Hence B.

15 second question :-)

Not A, C, E - Must be "was" as anger is the only emotion in the sentence.

D - Issues with ||ism.

I say B.

this is a classic case of inversion!!

the sentence could be read this way: anger was among the emotions on display..

the subject here is anger, which needs the singular "was"

A/C/E can be eliminated

D is redundant with "raised over and over"

so the answer should be B

B too.
"preventing the raw wounds" is not an emotion. A, C, E out.
D is not ||
