(B) are common, although statistics shows Americans still associate his name with

(C) are common, although statistics shows Americans still associate his name to

(D) is common, although statistics show Americans still associate his name with --> Correct, rectifies S-V and idiom error

(E) is common, although statistics shows Americans still associate his name to


Hence, D.

Praise is singular so should be followed by is.
Eliminate A, B, C.
Associate with is the right idiom.
Answer D.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



There is a simple grammatical question. What thing/things is/are common? Praise is common. Praise is singular, so we say ‘is common’. That leaves us with choices D and E. It is correct to say that we associate x with y, not to y. ‘To’ often implies movement. As a plural noun ‘statistics’ requires the third person plural verb ‘show’. Choice D is the correct answer.

Follow up question... I understand why D is correct. However, suppose the wording were arranged to the following:

(D) is common, although statistics show Americans still associate his name with

(E) is common, although statistics show Americans still associate his name to

Now we have "show" in E but we have "his name with" vs "his name to" in D vs E.

Can anyone explain the right answer if the question was to be worded this way?
