Hi..
ANY can take singular or plural verb depending on context..
For this look at the noun after ANY..
Here it is 'any of stockholderS', thus a plural noun and so verb disapprove should be PLURAL

B is correct in this aspect.

B

Well, I really think the answer is A. Yes, It mentions "Stockbrokers" but the sentence is actually referring to "any of the Stockbrokers" which is singular.

Hello!

Chetan2u has already provided the answer and the explanation.
The answer is B.

Yes, "any" is singular by itself but it depends from the following noun.
Look at this example.
One of the students is going to speak.
But.
One of the students that are present is going to speak.
So, in our case it is practically the same.
Any of stockholders who disapprove


Any of stockholders who disapproves of the management-endorsed state of candidates may offer an alternative state under procedures wstablished by the SEC.

A. who disapproves
B. who disapprove
C. that are disapproving
D. that do not approve
E. who are not in approval

Manhattan has mentioned 5 pronouns which take up Verb depending on the Number of the subject following 'of'. Those pronouns are:Some,Any,None,All,Many.

So here in the question 'of' follows Plural Noun after Any, the verb will be also in Plural form. Hence,B.

It will depend on the context..
Who-Should be followed by VERB so disapprove is correct.
If you required a NOUN disapproval would be correct.
After the approval/disapproval of the managing committee, the coach was sacked.

For SANAM,i.e some,all,none,any & many, the word following the prepositions will become the subject.

Like in this example "Any of stockholders who" , after any we have of and word following this is stockholders. so, stockholders will become the subject and since it is plural therefore we can use disapprove

Full disclosure: I have about 60 questions in my inbox that I'm itching to answer, but I picked on this one first because... go Eagles! (For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about: the Super Bowl is tomorrow, and the evil empire Patriots are playing the Philadelphia Eagles. So if PhillyKid has a question, I'm all over it today. Welcome to GMAT Club, PhillyKid! Seriously one of my favorite cities in the U.S.)

I hate to say this, but the question itself is such a hot mess that I don't think anybody should be paying any attention to it at all. I mean, check this out again:

Quote:
Any of stockholders who disapproves of the management-endorsed state of candidates may offer an alternative state under procedures wstablished by the SEC.

"Any of stockholders" isn't really English, and neither is the word "wstablished." And those aren't even in the underlined portion.

Many of you have heard me say this a billion times, but the GMAT spends between $1500 and $3000 developing every question, and even the best test-prep companies can't compete. And I have no idea where this particular disaster of a question came from.

So please don't waste any more of your time and energy on this thing! If you're in the U.S., spend some time making a killer guacamole instead, because it's almost Super Bowl Sunday, and we have some serious eating to do... :)
