In the Champagne region of France, wine growers still harvest grapes as they have done for centuries, by carefully handpicking their crop and storing their precious fruit in specially aged casks.

Concepts tested:-
1) S-V agreement
2) Pronoun
3) Tense

1) wine growers- Subject in plural form. Hence the corresponding verb form must be used. Wine growers----> Harvest
2) Pronoun "they" must refer to corresponding antecedent in plural form. They---->Wine growers
3) Harvesting of grapes started in past and continues till the time of speaking.(Refer the keywords "for centuries" & "Still" ). Hence present perfect must be used. "They have done"

Therefore the original sentence needs zero corrections.

Ans. (A)

(D) wine growers still harvest grapes as has been done

(E) wine growers still harvest grapes as they did


KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



A.

If you can’t spot an error in the original, scan the choices and look for reasons to cross some out. Then guess from the rest. (B) uses the singular “wine grower,”but you need the plural to go with “their crop” and “their fruit”in the non-underlined part of the sentence. (C) and (D) make the sentence switch from active (“harvest”) to passive (“as was done, as has been done”) for no good reason.Avoid the passive if possible. In(E), ”did” implies that the wine growers have stopped harvesting. Growers still harvest, so you need “have done” in (A) to indicate continuing action.
