Hm... I think perhaps this might be classified as an idiomatic part of English expression... "All things antique" just sounds more correct to me. Yes, I think the structure is Noun + Adj., which is strange in English, but people do say "I love all things Greek," etc. Sorry I can't explain that better.

The answer is (B). I have no problem with the meaning of this choice, but what is things antique. I can't understand its meaning or its structure: Noun + ADJ ???

Here in c and e "bring" is wrong as it refers to market which is singular .. so C and E are out
A out as "are" is not proper "Market" singular
Now out of B and C .
C is wordy .
things antique is correct . So B

"That" in the above sentence is a pronon for Market or America's Fasicination ? I thought its for America's Fascination. But could be worng . Can you pls explain ?

E is wrong because both grown and bring appear to be happening at the same time...However bring has happening all the time there was growth...so should be in the continuous tense.....

On the contrary, I would say that IMO, has is the verb which is pointing to the noun America's fascination....

(D) antique things have grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that are bringing
(E) antique things has grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that bring

B is correct. My reasoning is as follows:

This is partly a modifier question, which modifies "Antique" and since "Antique" is a collective noun, it is singular and "has" is appropriate to use. Any comments are welcome.

IMO , there is no subject in D/E. if there was no "out of" then "America's fascination " would have been the subject as below

( America's fascination with all antique things - the subject) has grown a market....

Actually they are correct English.

- All thing [which are] antique ...
- I love all things [which are] Greek

[which are] is omitted in this case for short.

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 claw-footed bathtub.

(A) things antique have grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that are bringing
(B) things antique has grown a market for bygones styles of furniture and fixtures that is bringing
(C) things that are antique has grown a market for bygones styles of furniture and fixtures that is bring
(D) antique things have grown a market for bygones styles of furniture and fixtures that are bringing
(E) antique things has grown a market for bygones styles of furniture and fixtures that bring

I have tried to understand this sentence but I could not. If we insert B, we get:

Out of America's fascination with all things antique has grown a market for bygones styles of furniture and fixtures that is bringing back the chaise lounge, the overstuffed sofa, and claw-footed bathtub.

I don't understand what the heck this sentence mean.

Something which I think can bring meaning to this would be to put "," (comma) after things. What are your comments? Thanks.

(A) things antique have grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that are bringing
"a market" is subject of the 2 verbs grow and bring
(B) things antique has grown a market for bygones styles of furniture and fixtures that is bringing
(C) things that are antique has grown a market for bygones styles of furniture and fixtures that is bring
"that" implies that "bygones styles of furniture and fixtures" is the subject of the verb bring
+ the market is bringing

(D) antique things have grown a market for bygones styles of furniture and fixtures that are bringing
a market has grown
(E) antique things has grown a market for bygones styles of furniture and fixtures that brings
"that" implies that "bygones styles of furniture and fixtures" is the subject of the verb bring

If it can help you, the comma should be put after "antique".

I didnt know that this
inverted kind of sentences also
existed and that they were also
valid, but it sounds a bit weird. I
mean if it is not the only correct
version, but structure of S+V+O, or O
+V+S (passive voice) is at least,
normal, usual, Comprehensive, and
noticeable-to-mental-grammar .
How in such small time and intense
pressure we will recognize such odd
pattern? I mean if you follow the
standard pattern of S+V+O, then one
would comprehend that market is
object and subject is messed up .
whats the point of saying simple
thing in such a weird way? Other
thing is that twisting something in
such odd manner gives interrogative
form to it. For example if i change "i
have killed siberian man" to "have i
killed siberian man", then evidently
sentence changes into question. In
fact i realise it now that that sentence which we just discussed could also be treated as question ?
