B is the answer. Identifying the subject is key to this Q.

Ask the Q what grown? market so subject is singular and we need singular verb

B & E remain

E uses bring for a singular subject market. hence thats wrong too.

B remains

IMO E. I think "that" refers to "bygone styles" and not to "market". Hence, B does not look right.

I kind of agree to what you are saying...but to me "is" does not look right when the subject has "and". Can you please clarify?

IMO B
SUBJECT - 'MARKET'
SO "IS" & "IS BRINGING" ARE RIGHTLY USED

I go with B.

1. America's facination with all things antique HAS
2. A market that IS bringing

E is incorrect - bring needs to be BRINGS since it's referring to a market.

IMO B
A -> antique HAVE is wrong

C -> running sentence
D ->running sentence
E->running sentence

Out of facination for all antique things have ... is incorrect construction

I will go with (B).
Apart from the singular subject and the correct use of "has", (B) is the only choice that makes sense (in meaning).
"Out of America's fascination of all things", => "antique" has grown a market.....

(E) says that, "Out of America's fascination of all antique things has grown.... seems like a run on sentence.

E cannot be the answer because 'bring' should be 'brings' if the subject is market as it is singular.
and you need to use -ing present continous as the action is continuing in the present so use present continuous.
see OG11 for this question.

Thanks Guys OA is B.

The problem with E is subject verb agreement: market .. bring (should be brings)
