Since John Locke acknowledged authorship of his political works only in a codicil to his will, the period during which the Second Treatise on Government was written has been established through a close analysis of Locke's reported activities near the time of publication; however, because no original manuscript has been found, what is much more difficult to determine are the personal reason Locke wrote the Treatise, the changes he might have made to his first version, and the extent to which the published version coheres with Locke's intentions.

Hehe ! Seems you guys missed the clue and fell for the decoy ....

A is almost correct except the "are" at the very end ...

"what is much more difficult to determine" is a noun clause and noun clauses such as these are always singular.

(B) is correct

OA is B!

but I thought are is proper in this sentence because the personal reason, the changes and the extent "are". Why is it "is"?

So you are saying is belongs to "..what is.."?

are the personal reason Locke wrote the Treatise, the changes he might have made to his first version, and the extent to which the published version coheres with Locke's intentions.
