Hi all,
Isn't foreign market acts as adjective? Why do we have plural markets here?

Thanks

The original sentence is correct. Foreign Market Analysis is singular - the verb must be singular. Thus, Remains is the correct verb.

All the other options have at least subject-verb agreement error.

We need "analysis remains" B, C, and E out. D changes the meaning by using "and".

A correct.
