1. S-V agreement issue - B and D are out "called paparadus" is a mod. of rain dances, so our main verb is "are"

2. Ritual(s) in my opinion it should be singular - rain dances are only "one" type of ritual so E is out

3. Article "a" Romanian farmer(s) - not sure about this one but my guts said Romanian farmer because we have rain dances so both are parallel so C is out

Answer: A

"rain dances" agrees with "are", so eliminate B, D.

"rain dances" is plural, so "an important ritual" should be "important rituals". Hence E.

(E) For Romanian Farmers, rain dances called paparadus are important rituals



rain dances as a whole is one ritual not multiple rituals,,,hence ritual is the right word...A,B and C remain
since the ritual is not specific to a farmer and genrally to a community as a whole
A shud be the best choice..
awaiting expert opinion though...

How do we know if we need to consider 'rain dances' as a single ritual or rituals ???

Only option E is correct because 'rain dances' and 'rituals' are both plural.
Other options are wrong as either is singular or plural but not both
