+1 for C

that is required and so A and E can eliminated. out of B,C and D, as it is in almost every local theater is correct, so C it is.

Further more, B can eliminated as desires is plural and have is correct.
D can be eliminated as opinion is singular and has is required

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



Option A does not provide a complete sentence. The expression is ‘it is common that.’ E has the same problem. The noun ‘desires’ is plural so the verb referring to desires must also be plural. Eliminate B. It should be ‘as have the desires’ not ‘as has the desires’. That leaves C and D. It is necessary to say ‘as it is’ rather than ‘as is’ at the start of the option. D is also incorrect because it says ‘the opinion...have’. The correct answer is C.
