1. Consistent is an adjective, and it modifies the noun revenues. This means that the revenues are consistent. That is not the correct meaning (consistent means that something remains the same, or happens the same way).

2. Unlike the noun rise, which is singular, revenues is plural. However, the verb has convinced is singular.

(D) The consistently rising revenues of the shipping company have convinced analysts that the company was

if (D) had was replaced with is, will the sentence be correct then ?

I want to understand the use of Consistently. is it an adverb and that is wrong ? is it wrong in modifying "rising revenues" being an adverb?

Yes, the sentence will be correct. 'Consistently' is an adverb modifying an adjective "rising"

Because of Subject-Verb disagreement. revenues is plural. However, the verb has convinced is singular

Thanks for the explanation. I was stuck thinking rising as a gerund. It makes sense that it is an adjective and plural is required.
