Their hands... show that workers must be plural

anyone is singular, so A and B are out

C doesn't make any sense

D 'those' doesn't have a referent

Excellent analysis. Used the exact same logic to derive (E).

But it took me over two minutes

I chose 'D' and looks like 'E' is the correct answer.

2 questions:

1. Would 'D' be correct, if it said

"and indeed those people who work with their hands" instead of
"and indeed those who work with their hands" ?

2. is "any people" correct? I thought "any person" is correct in english and not "any people". Are you guys sure "any people is correct?"

Ivymba, what is the OA please?

I think the answer is "D" and not "E". "Any people" should be wrong. "Many people" is ok in English.

Many people think that I don't know english grammar.
Any people???

OA is E

Like U2lover explained
Carpenters, dentists, sewing machine operators are plural.
But 'anybody' is singular.

So keeping up the plural structure for all elements in the sentence, E is the best available option among the ones available. We have to pick one right ?

I made the same mistake too ..
