It has been observed that the wail of a child under stress or its exuberant elation, though unrelated, emanate from the same origin.

(A) the wail of a child under stress or its exuberant elation, though unrelated, emanate
singular, hence should be emanates
(B) the wail of a child under stress and its exuberant elation, though unrelated, emanates
Plural, should be emanate
(C) though unrelated, the wail of a child under stress or its exuberant elation, emanate
singular, hence should be emanates
(D) the exuberant elation of a child or its wail under stress, though unrelated, emanates
Correct
(E) the exuberant elation of a child or its wail under stress, though unrelated, emanate
singular, hence should be emanates

Take Away:
Only "and" can make a subject plural.

I went with the 2/3 Split in the last.

So Emanates vs emanate
So Emanates with Or list suits well :):)
Went with D)

D says : the exuberant elation of a child or its wail under stress, though unrelated, emanates .
what does "its" refer to ? -----> logically "its" should refer to child . but how is that possible ?

I don't like this question. What emanates from the same origin? Wail and exuberant elation? If so then why "emanates" if we talk about two things? These two factors should be connected in some way. Also there should be comma after "stress"

(B) the wail of a child under stress and its exuberant elation, though unrelated, emanates

(C) though unrelated, the wail of a child under stress or its exuberant elation, emanate

The answer is D as

(D) the exuberant elation of a child or its wail under stress, though unrelated, emanates.

As in D the pronoun its correctly refers to child and correct subject verb agreement is used with elation, wail and emanates

X and Y, emanate.. as X and Y forms plural, just like both.
X or Y, emanates.. as X or Y forms singular, just like any one only.

D is the only option that has it..
