how do we know when to use the touch rule vs. cutting the middlemen such as here to refer to market? or does this point boil down to intended meaning to know which to use?

I believe (E) is the correct choice. I don't understand how (D) is correct.

1. other people’s lives have grown a booming market for “reality” television shows that are bringing
2. other people’s lives has grown a booming market for “reality” television shows that are bringing
3. another person’s life has grown a booming market for a “reality” television show that is bringing
4. other people’s lives has grown a booming market for “reality” television shows that is bringing
5. other people’s lives has grown a booming market for “reality” television shows that bring

Which one is the correct answer and why ?
This one of very good hard level questions. Answer debate is between 3 and 4 (C and D) to make it simpler, rest all looks obvious.

i.e. Subject "Out of the public’s interest " is singular so "has" .. "increasing frequency" means it has to be progressive tense so E is out.. debate between C and D ..

Out of the public’s interest | in the details of | and conflicts in | other people’s lives | have grown a booming market for “reality” television shows | that are bringing “regular” people onto the television screen with increasing frequency.

As I see, public's interest is singular so a booming market "has" grown. Also, "that bring" in Option E sounds awkward. I'd rather go with B or D, C is completely changing the scenario and mentioning only one show, which might not be the case, when there's a market, you cannot rephrase it as a monopoly.

that is bringing / that are bringing, will depend on "booming market" becoming the subject for the latter part of the sentence or the "television shows". can verbal experts throw more light on this situation?

The subject can not reside in prepositional phrase, and hence television shows can not be the subject here as it resides in the prepositional phrase for “reality” television show.

4321 The idea here is that the market is currently bringing people onto the screen. This is a bit odd since of course the shows certainly do bring people on TV. It makes more sense in the original question from which this is copied: https://gmatclub.com/forum/out-of-ameri ... 77722.html

Can someone please explain why B is out. Is "“reality” television shows that are bringing". reality television shows is plural right is it considered singular like Army?

The subject is 'a booming market', so the verb forms 'has grown' and 'is bringing' must be used.

Hi,

This question is part of Kaplan800.

Between 'D' and 'E', I feel, logically the 'reality show bring the regular people onto the television', as opposed to, 'the market bringing the people on the show'.

Opinions?
