+1 for this question.

Subject = Studies is Plural - hence the verb = suggest - should be plural.

Neglect {A and D}

{B} (1) Incorrect placing of - "to them" after devices.
(2) Incorrect "have" in the later part of the sentence - referring to the -"material" should be "has"

{E} While introduces a Comparison, which is never made in the sentence. Secondly - "conveyed from" in later part of sentence is also incorrect.

Correct Answer should be -
{C}


[1] Correct Verb - suggest
[2] Correct Idiom - through a device as familiar to them as a cellphone
[3] Correct Usage - conveyed in

Methevoid, +1 to you

You nailed it this time. Excellent observation. Just one more to add In option D, "its" singular incorrectly refers to "students" plural.

A. suggests that engaging students in class through a device as familiar to them as a cell phone increase its understanding of material that may otherwise be conveyed in // suggests - > Incorrect
B. suggest that to engage students in class through familiar devices to them as a cell phone increases their understanding of material that may otherwise have to be conveyed in // have looks incorrect to me here as the subject is their understanding of material which i guess is singular. Secondly suggest that to sounds awkward to me.
C. suggest that engaging students in class through a device as familiar to them as a cell phone increases their understanding of material that may otherwise be conveyed in // answer
D. suggests that engaging students in class through a device so familiar to them as a cell phone will increase its understanding of material that may otherwise be conveyed in //suggests-> Incorrect.
E. suggest that while engaging students in class through a device as familiar to them as a cell phone increases the understanding of material that may otherwise be conveyed from// while seems to be incorrect as it leaves me wanting for more info , while it increases their understanding but then also what else...while is usually used to express simultaneous actions.

Experts, any thought here ?
