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

B. was anger for repeatedly raising the issue and preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles from ever beginning to heal

C. were anger over repeatedly raising the issue and preventing the raw wounds from earlier battles to begin healing

D. was anger about the issue, which was raised over and over, and preventing the wounds from earlier battles, still raw, 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

anger goes with was....over and over is redundant....raising and preventing are parallel...so its B

A, C and E are out as were is not proper "to be" used here.

between B and D. go for B

..., which is used over and over, and preventing... gramatically incorrect and redundant.

while repeatedly can be substituted with over and over
as well. as raising and preventing are parallel

B

appuvar, the thing with this one is understanding that the real subject in this sentence is anger, which is singular.

I believe the correct usage with anger is "over". But C seems to use plural with "were"...which makes it wrong. Can anyone please help? This is copy-pasted from the list of 70 brutal SCs in the sticky.

Among the emotions should be use with "were", I am down chosing between C or E. Chose E because "to begin to heal" is the right usage.

need plural form.

C. BD have wrong verb. E is in passive. prefer "anger over" in C to "anger for" in A.

Gmat Tiger, could u tell me whats in E that makes it passive? usage of 'were'? to my opinion only 'by' makes passive.

This question is a case of inversion.

The red part in E is in paassive. the verb "were" is not in passive mood but "which was raised repeatedly" is in a passive mood.

I am slightly still confised about why we need plural form. Anger is the ONLY emotion we are talking about among many.

FOr eg, is this sentence correct?
Among the many feelings he had about the issue, anger was predominant.
Is not, what is wrong with it? if it is correct, how is it different from the sentence in question.

the anger is over 2 things -- repeatedly raising the issue and thus preventing wounds from healing. But the emotion is only one -- anger.

Is my reasoning wrong?

In the sentence , were/was is being used for anger and not emtions since anger is the only emotion. So , shouldnt is be was . My answer is B.

Whats the OA?

Can you please explain how "were" is justified?

Just invert the sentence.

Anger over repeatedly raising the issue and [anger over -implied] preventing the raw wounds from eariler battles to begin healing were the emotions on display in the negotiating room.

I think OA is B and not C as mentioned in the earlier post. Can you check it again please. Also B looks more logical for use of "was"

B - among requires use of singular verb was and this choice eliminates the redundancy of repeated over and over
