Chose option E, since this is only option which consistent in removing Number issue and idomatic issue.
Still i think that "the dynamics" is singular. Any comments??

My though process,

ABC all three out because dynamics is plural and we need a plural (come) to refer.

and the the Option E is wrong because, making X to be is wrong idiomatically.

the left over option is D and it reads well.


Kindly consider kudos.

The dynamics between A and B is growing.. > CORRECT
The dynamics between A and B are growing.. > INCORRECT

Considering this example, I am assuming dynamics is singular. Hence IMO ans A.

What's OA?

Experts View on this!! I feel "Dynamics" in this context is singular whereas correct answer suggests it should be plural...Confused with "Come" or "Comes" usage as well. Pls help!

Hi anu1706 and kanigmat011,

Though I am not an expert , I will try to explain my thought process. :)

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.

1. ) Even I felt "Dynamics" should be singular and not plural. But whenever you encounter a situation where you are confused whether a particular term is singular or plural, always look for consistency in the answer choices. i.e. all references to that particular term must be either singular or plural.
Employ this rule and you will eliminate few choices right away.
(Choices A,B and C in this case)

2.) Idioms play a part here. Idioms such as "Declare", "Consider" and "Make" do not take anything (as, to be etc.).

--> Declare X Y - The Supreme Court declared all fundamental rights unconstitutional. ( does not take "as", "to be" etc. )
--> Consider X Y - I consider myself a good friend of the senator. ( does not take "as", "to be" etc. )
Similarly, "Making Buenos Aires one of the great immigrant cities" is correct. Hence Eliminate option D which uses "to be".

(A) that make Buenos Aires – one of the great immigrant cities of the developing world – comes into focus --> make (plural ) and comes (singular) - Wrong

(B) that make Buenos Aires, which is one of the great immigrant cities of the developing world, comes into focus --> make (plural ) and comes (singular) - Wrong

(C) which make Buenos Aires one of the great immigrant cities of the developing world comes into focus --> make (plural ) and comes (singular) - Wrong

(D) making Buenos Aires to be one of the great immigrant cities of the developing world come into focus --> Idiom must be Make X Y and not Make X to be Y - wrong

(E) making Buenos Aires one of the great immigrant cities of the developing world come into focus -- > SV matching and correct idiom - Make X Y - Correct

I came down to D & E and got it correct. Still, I am not sure of the subtle difference here.

VeritasPrepKarishma Can you please help here ?

Dynamics as a science that deals with motion is singular like Economics, Statistics or Mathematics. When dynamics refers to the forces that drive a particular cause, it is plural. In this given case, the word refers to the various causes that make Beano Aires an important migrant city. Hence the verb to use are plural verbs -- ‘that make’ and ‘come into’.

Hi Ronaldo,

Sorry I missed this part "always look for consistency in the answer choices. i.e. all references to that particular term must be either singular or plural.". Can you please explain little more on this.

It is totally irrelevant whether "dynamics" is singular or plural. All the options except D and E were inconsistent in using singular or plural form.
D is too redundant. carries excess baggage.

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.

(A) that make Buenos Aires – one of the great immigrant cities of the developing world – comes into focus - Wrong. Subject Verb Agreement, "The dynamics (Plural Noun)....comes (Singular Verb)...

(B) that make Buenos Aires, which is one of the great immigrant cities of the developing world, comes into focus - Wrong. Subject Verb Agreement, "The dynamics (Plural Noun)....comes (Singular Verb)...

(C) which make Buenos Aires one of the great immigrant cities of the developing world comes into focus - Wrong. Subject Verb Agreement, "The dynamics (Plural Noun)....comes (Singular Verb)...There's also something strange here with the word "which" a comma needs to come before it.

(D) making Buenos Aires to be one of the great immigrant cities of the developing world come into focus - Wrong. Making BA to be one is a very strange structure that you can use your ear to eliminate

(E) making Buenos Aires one of the great immigrant cities of the developing world come into focus - Correct. SVA is all good!

Hi Verbal experts,

If Choice a would have been:

" that make Buenos Aires – one of the great immigrant cities of the developing world – come into focus"

I mean if the sentence would have used "come" instead of "comes", then choice A is correct?

is the usage of "Dynamics that make..." and "Dynamics making...." --> Both are correct?

The thing about this question is that we can eliminate A,B,C because they incorrectly use a singular verb "comes." The subject that takes the verb "come" is the "the dynamics." Dynamics are various things or factors or mechanisms of Buenos Aries - so this is actually a plural subject. E is not a great sounding sentence, but they answers in high level GMAT SC questions are not always pretty or smooth sounding sentences.

E
