Public is not plural but singular. E is correct. What is OA?

if you hesitate between A and E, you don't need to know whether public is singular or plural. In option A the form of the verb have "has" is incorrect since the subject consists of The public's general concern and the overall faith in the long-term growth of the stock market.
