IMO, the answer is B. Each comes AFTER the subjects so the subjects are still in plural form.

Those of you tempted to choose A, ask yourself how the verb can be "is" in one place and "are" in another?

thanks akamai,

"Each" was not an issue for me. but the "Verb" part is very very tricky.
yes, i chose A.
your explanation about "are" + subject + "are" is intuitive and makes
sense.

question :

1. Doesnt a verb always " follow" a subject?
( except in sentences where we ask a question)
"they are" , it is etc etc

2. Are we dealing with "inversion" here?

thanks a lot

this is not an example of inversion.

These are:

"Blessed are our children."
"When preparing for the GMAT, even more important than studying frequently is studying "wisely."

The grammar here is simple: There is a compound subject connected with "and". Hence, it is plural and the referring verb is also plural.

The confusion here is the word "each". If "each" were the subject of the clause, then the verb would be singular.

"Bill went to Las Vegas, where there are many ways to gamble that are each risky and time-consuming".
"Bill went to Las Vegas, where each of the many ways to gamble is risky and time-consuming".

Just a little bit digression here..

In KAPLAN book, it is mentioned that on GMAT, each is used to indicate difference and both is used to indicate similarities. Keeping that in mind, since here we are talikng about the similarities between the two laws, should the question have "both" instead of "each"?

I understand that the answer choices that uses "both" in this question does not make sense. Is it just that the question is not of ETS quality?
