I picked B.

we need to use has grown for singular noun market.

again the "market" results in xyz and not the food so we need singular verb.

only B uses it. So B is correct.

I will go with E.

"Out of America's fascination with all things Japanese have grown..." seems to say that America's fascination is with all things and Japanese have grown a market. A and B out. C, D and E in.

But IMO, its America's fascination that "has" grown market... D out.

E is far better than C

christoph, i think you are right. however, isn't "that" typically modifies noun just immediately preceding it? At least in gmat..i learnt it hard way. Do you see this as exception?

a market for exotic types of foods that is resulting

B is the best. First, subject/verb agreement between market and has grown. Second, "that" refers to market.

usually it refers to the nearest noun but there are rare exceptions. i would call it a logical reference. when the reference makes no sense u should look a little bit further. but the rule that the noun should be as near as possible to the relative clause is obligatory. here is a quote of a grammar site:

"In a relative clause, the relative pronoun is the subject of the verb and refers to (relates to) something preceding the clause."

Another reengineered OG problem.

OA is B

OE:

Spot the Error ( to learn more about the common error types and how to spot them):

The presence of underlined verbs indicate that verbs are being tested. The presence of have grown and "are" points to verbs being tested in this sentence.

Rule and Fix:
A verb must agree with the noun that is refers to and must use the appropriate tense. The verb "have grown" should agree with fascination and the verb "are" should agree with "market", neither do.

POE:
A and D should be eliminated because of "have grown" and C should be eliminated because of "are."

Chunk and Compare:
Compare B and E.
B uses "resulting," which is both singular and plural and E uses "result," which is plural (and thus does not agree with "a market." Eliminate E.

Choose B
