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

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


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

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

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...
