Ask yourself what is "thriving in the free market conditions" - Television programs.
Subject is plural, so verb has to be plural

are Vs is - are wins.
B, C - out

D - out, "they" pronoun error

A Vs E - A sounds awkward

E for me

IMO B


Television programs developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys, which was once prohibited by federal regulations, are thriving in the free market conditions permitted by the current Federal Communications Commission.

(A) Television programs developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys, which was once prohibited by federal regulations, are --> the subject here is all the phrase: Television programs developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys, so are is incorrect. Besides, which ...regulations wrongly modifies for toys

(B) Television programs developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys, a practice that federal regulations once prohibited, is --> practice, referring to all the fact stated before, is correctly used to indicate the whole issue and continued by appropriate is

(C) Developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys, as once prohibited by federal regulations, is --> I think prohibited here is ambiguously used: what is prohibited by federal regulations. Use of practice makes the meaning of the sentence more precise

(D) Federal regulations once prohibited developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys, but they are --> they is who: programs or toys or regulations?

(E) Federal regulations once prohibited developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys, but such programs are -->TV programs can't thrive in the free market. It is the practice of the developing of such programs is thriving

(A) Television programs developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys, which was once prohibited by federal regulations, are Tv programs can't be developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys - i.e. you need action noun such as gerund

(B) Television programs developed in conjunction with the marketing of toys, a practice that federal regulations once prohibited, is same as A; an action can be a "a practice", not tv programs

(C) Developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys, as once prohibited by federal regulations, is "as" seems suspect; what is thriving is not "developing" in gerund form, but "tv programs"

(D) Federal regulations once prohibited developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys, but they are "they"? regulations or tv programs?

(E) Federal regulations once prohibited developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys, but such programs are CORRECT - Federal regulations prohibited "developing", but it is tv programs that thrived

Initially it was posted by gmatee (see qoute in post#3). But then he decided to delete it. As for me, I think that OA is (E) :)

- 'is' is wrong for 'subject-verb agreement'.

- 'they' is ambiguous.
(E) Federal regulations once prohibited developing television programs in conjunction with the marketing of toys, but such programs are

How "is" is voilating the subject-verb agreement ?

A practice is singular and hence is is perfectly fine..,,,please comment.

Yes, but in A which refers to toys, not the development, so A is incorrect.

Can we eliminate A on the basis of wrong parallel structure?

idiom is ...X in conjunction with Y.

'Television programs developed' is not parallel with 'the marketing of toys'

I eliminated A because 'which' next to 'toys' gives an impression that 'toys' were once prohibited by federal government.

It was a practice and not the toys that was once prohibited by federal govt.
