In Hungary, as in much of eastern Europe, an overwhelming proportion of women work, many of which are in middle management and light industry

A as in much of eastern Europe,an overwhelming proportion of women work,many of which are in
B as with much of eastern Europe,an overwhelming proportion of women works,many in
C as in much of eastern Europe,an overwhelming proportion of women work,many of them in
D like much of Eastern Europe, an overwhelming proportion of women works,and many are
E like much of Eastern Europe, an overwhelming proportion of women work,many are in


My question is why is Choice C correct?
It says that an overwhelming proportion of women work. Should it not be "works" as we are talking about proportion of women-a singular subject

I am no expert, but I can say that the verb must be plural
"as in much of eastern Europe,an overwhelming proportion of women work,many of them in "
The "women" work, not the "proportion"
