Subject verb agreement

Iguanas have ... --> Iguanas : plural

POE: A,B and E go away

we have C and D
prized as game animals .. must be plural

D violates the subject verb agreement too

I agree with the reasoning. But I think you mixed up C and D.

Thanks guys, the OA is C. However, I was confused for a bit with the use of "the meat" which makes it seem like the game animal needs to be singular.

C

It is refering to iguanas, and so we have agreement issues.

I agree with the answer.....but in general in C they could refer to "prehistoric times" and "Iguanas"??!!

Any rule to distinguish properly???

Thanks

You need a 'they' to refer back to Iguanas. that leaves C & D. D seems wordy to me. hence settled for C.

Its both a S-V Agreement AND a Pronoun issue.

Iguanas have been an important food source in Latin America since prehistoric times, and it is still prized as a game animal by the campesinos, who typically cook the meat in a heavily spiced stew.

so only C & D

(C) they are still prized as game animals -- Winner
(D) they are still prized as being a game animal - wordy

Iguanas have been an important food source in Latin America since prehistoric times, and it is still prized as a game animal by the campesinos, who typically cook the meat in a heavily spiced stew.

1) Pronoun 'it' is at the subject's place in clause 2 and thus is referring back to Iguanas which is plural. Therefore pronoun error.

2) 'a game animal' is singular and modifies Iguanas which is plural. Thus modifier error.

Choice C corrects these errors and is the correct answer choice.

By removing the fluff, we can see that Iguanas is plural and the original sentence uses 'it' and 'animal' in singular. For this reason eliminate A,B,D and E

Iguanas have been an important food source in Latin America since prehistoric times, and it is still prized as a game animal by the campesinos, who typically cook the meat in a heavily spiced stew.

The only answer left is C
