crisis is a wrong diction to describe two factors of crisis. The right diction is 'crises"; only C

Thank you samichange, daagh!

Do you have other examples that we can collate here for commonly mistaken words/plurals?

A – SV disagreement, there is only one crisis so “are” should be “is”
B – “down” is redundant.
D – fails to mention the oil part of the crisis
E – same as B

So, C is the right answer.
