pride requires has... As such, only (B) and (C) left.

committee requires singular verb agreement. Option (C) contains the wrong s/v agreement. Thus, (B).

IMO the answer is B.

Its parallel.

Tough because this is an example of one where the ideal way of phrasing the sentence is not an answer choice.

The answer has to be B, the only option to match the two subject-verb agreements (growing pride+has, a committee+is).

Explain please...

Dear nahid78,
I'm happy to respond. :-) I usually am a fan of Veritas questions, but I am not sure that I approve of this one. This one has a rather unconventional sentence structure, one that I think would be unlikely to appear on the GMAT.

Of course the topic is Detroit, the largest US city ever to file bankruptcy.

You see, in the sentence the subject appears AFTER the verb. This is a somewhat colloquial structure, common in American journalist.
"Out of X has developed [subject] . . . "

The main subject of the sentence is "a committee." This is singular, so demands a singular verb, "has developed." (D) & (E) are out.

This "committee" is also the target of the modifier clause that begins with "that." Thus, we need a singular verb----"is creating," not "are creating" or "create." We can eliminate all four incorrect choices on the basis of SVA.

The question is just a bit too colloquial for my tastes, and once one unpacks what's going on, it's a one-trick pony. Not a horrible question, but not Veritas' best.

Here's a solid SC practice question:
http://gmat.magoosh.com/questions/3215
When you submit your answer, the following page will have a video solution.

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)

a definite B!
this is inverted question where verb comes before a subject
a committee has developed---right so A, D and E are out
C is wrong as committee is singular and verb "create" is plural thus its wrong

A committee has developed that is creating

This given sentence is an inverted form where verb comes before the subject.
Try to understand the sentence by its meaning.

Does it make sense to say that pride developed a committee for preservation of X.
or will it be better to say that
A committee has developed for preservation of X.
if u feel why it formed, the answer(modifier) here is out of growing pride in achievements.

This is so similar to the Official question that I came across some time back: Out of America's fascination with all things antique have grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that are bringing back the chaise lounge, the overstuffed sofa, and the claw-footed bathtub.

Yes, subject-verb flip is a trap that GMAC uses occasionally. Our familiarity with the normal order of subject preceding verb may mislead us into identifying the subject wrongly. In majority of such cases the other contending (but wrong) subject(s) would generally be within a prepositional phrase before the verb.

In this case, the other contenders "pride" and "achievements" are within a prepositional phrases starting with "Out of...".

In the OG case you mentioned, the other contenders "fascination" and "all things antique" are within a prepositional phrases starting with "Out of...".

Hi mikemcgarry,
Could you please elaborate more about this? What would the normal sentence looks like?
I still can't follow how to reach such conclusion as I am having a problem with the re-inverted sentence,especially the placement of "that".

Thanks :-D

Dear sleepynut,

I'm happy to respond. :-) I must confess, I am not sure exactly what you are asking.

The OA has somewhat unusual word order, a word order typical of more sophisticated writing.
Out of a growing pride in the region’s pre-automotive achievements has developed a committee for the preservation of Detroit’s landmarks and artifacts that is creating monuments and museums across the city.
Notice that every before the verb is a series of prepositional phrases. There's no legitimate candidate for the subject, no freestanding noun, until we get to the word "committee." Thus, the word "committee" must be the subject.

Notice that "committee" is the only freestanding noun in the sentence until the word "that." You have to have the ability to set aside prepositional phrases and see the core grammatical structure of a sentence:
Out of a growing pride in the region’s pre-automotive achievements has developed a committee for the preservation of Detroit’s landmarks and artifacts that is creating monuments and museums across the city

This is a "normal" sentence, normal for sophisticated writing.

My friend, it seems you are looking for clear rules you can use, and to master sentences of this sort, you need to develop the habit of reading. See:
How to Improve Your GMAT Verbal Score

Does all this make sense?
Mike :-)
