B . . . SVA

A thru D should be singular, E using "and" should be plural.

This question is terrible - but POE says B. Only word that can create a compound (plural) subject is "and"...

B.

I think MGMAT explains this trap nicely. "And" compounds subject wheras 'along with' , 'in addition to ' 'as well as', ' including' ... don't. So if its not AND then stick with the tense of the subject, in this case Dr. Phillip.

If the question was something like "Four distinguished collegues, including Dr. Philip , then you must look for "are" and NOT "is", because subject here is four collegues.

E presents another trap. it uses "and" thus you must be looking for plurar "are" instead of "is".

Agree on the rule, however ...is...their... reads a little strange.

For a minute I also thought 'their' reads strange, but later when I read in the full context it made sense.

Though B is grammatically correct, E if "is" is replaced with "are" would have been a better sentence conveying the same message.
