Hi,

Can someone explain what's the subject of "has reached" in option D? I couldn't connect the verb with any subject here. Many thanks

Hi beatgmat2016, the subject is the number of students.

(D) enrollment: the number of students in public schools has grown steadily since the mid-1980’s and, at nearly 47 million, has reached -correct SV agreement

(E) enrollment: students in public schools have grown steadily in number, since the mid-1980’s and, at nearly 47 million, are at- students are not at record high, number of students are at record high so, it is incorrect
