option B ... though I am confused between B and D , I would go for B

OFFICIAL EXPLANATION



Even though through technology numerous practical inventions have been created to assist people, there is still many barriers preventing the complete integration of the disabled into the working sphere and other sectors of society.


A. Even though through technology numerous practical inventions have been created to assist people, there is still many barriers preventing the complete integration of the disabled into the working sphere and

This answer choice is grammatically incorrect. The plural subject many barriers does not agree with the singular verb is.

What helps us identify this question as a Subject Verb Agreement question and identify the mistake is the following Stop Sign: The verb precedes the subject



B. Even though through technology numerous practical inventions have been created to assist people, there are still many barriers preventing the complete integration of the disabled into the working sphere as well as

Although this answer choice corrects the original Subject Verb Agreement error by replacing is with are in the phrase there are still many barriers, it uses the redundant phrase as well as which should be replaced by and.


C. Through technology, numerous practical inventions have been created to assist people although there is still many barriers that prevent the complete integration of the disabled into the working sphere and

This answer choice is grammatically incorrect and repeats the original Subject Verb Agreement error. The plural subject many barriers does not agree with the singular verb is.

What helps us identify this question as a Subject Verb Agreement question and identify the mistake is the following Stop Sign: The verb precedes the subject



D. Through technology, numerous practical inventions have been created to assist people although there are still many barriers that prevent the complete integration of the disabled into the working sphere and

This answer choice corrects the original Subject Verb Agreement error by replacing is with are in the phrase there are still many barriers. It is also the most concise of the answer choices.


E. Numerous practical inventions have been created to assist people through technology although there are still many barriers that prevent the complete and full integration of the disabled into the working sphere and

Although this answer choice corrects the original Subject Verb Agreement error by replacing is with are in the phrase there are still many barriers, it creates redundancy by using two adjectives that mean the same thing: complete and full. Since there is another answer choice that is both grammatically correct and concise, it is better than this one.
