key is to identify the subject of verbs in the sentence- have grown /are bringing. a market has grown and the market is bringing. subject is market. now lets see what is wrong with the wrong options :
1.things antique have grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that are bringing
what has grown? market - singular - have gone a market is wrong!
2.things antique has grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that is bringing : correct
3.things that are antiques has grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that bring
things that are antique- redundant
that bring is wrong - what brings? the market -s ingular subject - singular verb. Also, the action is a progressive action, still continuing
4.antique things have grown a market for bygone styles of furniture that are bringing: market have grown wrong, market are bringing is wrong!
5.antique things has grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that bring : again market bring is worng in both the number and the tense

B is correct.
A- Are bringing is parallel with singular market.
C, E - Bring is not correct
D- are bringing is not parallel.

market "has" grown leaves B, C, E
C - things that are antique - wordy
E - "that bring" incorrect verb, missing

The sentence is inverted.

OBSERVE the Kernel Sentence:

Out of fascination has grown a market.

A market has grown out of fascination.


B is really the BEST choice.

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

This is the actual flipped sentence. The subject is the singular -a market – and the verb therefore has to be -has grown-
What is/are bringing back the stated antiques? Logically It cannot be the furniture and fixtures nor the bygone styles nor all things because what are brought back are themselves antique furniture and fixtures of bygone styles and they cannot bring themselves. Something else must be bringing them. It is actually the fascination, as pointed out by some posters that is driving the renaissance of these styles. Hence the verb for the second part must also be singular, namely, is bringing as in B

in B, the oa, "which/that clause" modifie a far noun "market". this is acceptable.

but in the following why "which clause " modifying far noun is considered errors.

from #48 og 13

It is called a sea, but the landlocked Caspian is
actually the largest lake on Earthf whichcovers more
than four times the surface area of its closest rival in
size, North America's Lake Superior.
(A) It is called a sea, but the landlocked Caspian is
actually the largest lake on Earth, which covers
(B) Although it is called a sea, actually the
landlocked Caspian is the largest lake on Earth,
which covers
(C) Though called a sea, the landlocked Caspian is
actually the largest lake on Earth, covering
(D) Though called a sea but it actually is the largest
lake on Earth, the landlocked Caspian covers
(E) Despite being called a sea, the largest lake on
Earth is actually the landlocked Caspian, covering

so "which/that clause" modifying far noun is considered INFERIOR. This means we have to eliminate it if there is a better choice.

is my thinking correct?

The right way to look into this sentence would be to remove the preposition phrases so that the subject and verb can be clearly understood.
Lets strike out the propositional phrases and see if that'll help:-

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

As you can see, its now easier to figure out the right answer.
fascination->singular->has
market->singular->is

Actually it should be the other way round.

market->singular->has
fascination->singular->is

market...has grown.. and fascination ...is bringing back the chaise lounge, .....

Option B is correct because :

- It correctly points to a singular form of market
- Clearly reflects that market & not the styles (plural) is the reason for bringing back the listed item in people's wishlist

IMO - B

Out of America's fascination with all things antique have grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that are bringing[/u] back the chaise lounge, the overstuffed sofa, and the claw-footed bathtub.
>> for subject antique we need singular verb has. Also, for subject a market, we need verb is not are.

(A) things antique have grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that are bringing >> SVA issue, we need has
(B) things antique has grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that is bringing >> correct SVA
(C) things that are antiques has grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that bring >> all things that are antiques has grown...has is issue here, we need a clause.
(D) antique things have grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that are bringing >> out of all antique things have grown...clause issue
(E) antique things has grown a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures that bring >> same as above

My Confusion here is the starting of the sentence - Out of America's fascination...
It seemed to me as a clause and was expecting a comma, after which i would find a noun it is modifying. Can somebody please explain me this structure.

Hi rakshithbabu,
I'm not sure whether I understood your question correctly but let me try to answer your question.

Here is the correct sentence:

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

This is a simple subject-verb inversion and usually such sentences start with an adverb followed by a verb and a subject. For example,

Hardly did he study for GMAT, yet he could score so well.

Here, note that inverting the sentence added extra emphasis or surprise on the fact the he "hardly" studied.

In this sentence also, Out of America's fascination with all things antique is an adverbial phrase, then we have the verb has grown and the noun phrase a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures

I hope the structure is clear to you now.

Hi TeamGMATIFY thanks for the explanation,
If i get it right,

Subject = a market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures
Verb = Grow (in the form has grown)
Modifier = Out of America's fascination with all things antique( which modifies the verb grow)

So re arranging the sentence to understand it better

A market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures has grown, out of America's fascination with all things antique, bringing back the chaise lounge, the overstuffed sofa, and the claw-footed bathtub.

Subject
Verb
Modifier of Verb

Please correct me if i am wrong.

HI rakshithbabu

if you invert the correct sentence, it will be:

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

After looking at this sentence, you can now appreciate the inverted construction used in the original sentence as presence of the noun modifier "that is bringing back the chaise lounge, the overstuffed sofa, and the claw-footed bathtub" in the middle has made the sentence almost unreadable.
Here
subject: A market for bygone styles of furniture and fixtures
Modifier modifying the subject market: that is bringing back the chaise lounge, the overstuffed sofa, and the claw-footed bathtub
verb: has grown
Verb modifier or adverbial modifier: out of America's fascination with all things antique.
