For those who walk through the surrounding maze of streets, the dynamics that make Buenos Aires—one of the great immigrant cities of the developing world—comes into focus.

Split 1 - SV Agreement "Dynamics...make" NOT "Dynamics... makes"
(A) that make Buenos Aires—one of the great immigrant cities of the developing world—comes into focus
(B) that make Buenos Aires, which is one of the great immigrant cities of the developing world, comes into focus
(C) which make Buenos Aires one of the great immigrant cities of the developing world comes into focus

"Making to be" doesn't make sense. The sentence is trying to say that the dynamics make the city come into focus.

(D) making Buenos Aires to be one of the great immigrant cities of the developing world come into focus

(E) making Buenos Aires one of the great immigrant cities of the developing world come into focus

But for those who walk through the surrounding maze of streets, the dynamics making São Paulo one of the great immigrant cities of the developing world come into focus. On the ground floor of a squatter-occupied building on Alameda Barão de Limeira, a street featuring decaying Art Deco buildings, Mélanito Biyouha put down stakes.

Official solution

While your attention may be drawn first to the differences at the start of each choice, the easiest decision point is the subject-verb agreement choice between “comes” and “come”. It is the “dynamics…come” not the “dynamics…comes” so you can safely and confidently eliminate (A), (B), and (C). Importantly, you should not waste time considering other differences, some of which don’t matter. In (D) “making Buenos Aires to be one of…” is clearly wrong so you are left with (E). Only (E) uses the proper modifier “making…” after dynamics and the correct verb “come.” Answer is (E).
