Even we dont know "Pharmaceuticals" is plural or singular, we still get the right choice.

B, D and E: "rank/are/have" agrees with plural noun. However, "one of the most ..." indicates that the object is singular. Eliminate D and E.

C: "the most" means that "Pharmaceuticals" is the top one. However, "only surpassed" illogically indicates that "Pharmaceuticals" isn't the top one. Eliminate C.

A remains as the correct choice.
