In answer choice C we have "a cycle of layoffs that lead" Why is it correct that the verb is plural since we have "a cycle" {noun} + "of layoffs" {prep. phrase} ?


Here both singular and plural valve would be alright depending on the meaning the author wants to convey. The pronoun "that" may refer to "layoffs" or "cycle". So the verb lead / leads depends on the meaning. Here the meaning conveyed is that the layoffs lead to lower employment rates.
