If you want people to present their views posting hints may not be a good idea as you would constrain few of the thoughts


Papers ... represent S-V agreement

Select B for also maintaining parallelism

Hi goalsnr,it has to be are representing to agree with papers and a comma should be there to set off the appositive in the main clause.

Yes "and also" is wordy and certainly not preferred in correct answer choice. You will also see few problems/explanations in OG eliminating answer choices with "and also" as wordy.

The subject here is-

The Federalist papers, which is a plural represent is correct(Plural subject, Plural Verb). A, C and D are discarded.

Only B and E can be correct.

Among B and E, B wins for parallelism.

The Federalist papers, a strong defense of the United States Constitution and important as a body of work in political science as well, represents the handiwork of three different authors.

The Federalist papers must agree in S-V withrepresents
It should be The Federalist papers represent
so we are left with b and E.
(A) and important as a body of work in political science as well, represents

(B) as well as an important body of work in political science, represent

(C) and also a body of work of importance in political science is representing

(D) an important body of work in political science and has been representative of

(E) and as political science an important body of work too, represent

A. seems fine
B. This option too seems fine. Isn't 'The Federalist Papers' a collective noun? Hence SINGULAR. Also, MGMAT's suggestion is to think singular when in doubt. Hence the plural verb 'represent' is wrong.
C. Missing Conjunction. Moreover, the continuous tense 'is representing' changes the meaning.
D. Missing Conjunction. Missing conjunction after 'Constitution'.
E. 'as political science an important body of work too' is awkward. Uses plural verb 'represent'

Regarding the poll: It is not a good idea to add hints, as we don't get them in the exam.

After eliminating the modifier and the fluff, we get "The Federalist papers represent the handiwork of three different authors."

Subject : Federalist Papers Verb : represent .
Clearly B.

Agree with gmatter. This is a collective noun.

Please experts advice on SV agreement for 'The federalist papers'

"Federalist Papers" would be a proper noun, and hence, singular.

But the "p" in "papers" is not capitalised. So "Federalist" functions as an adjective to the noun/subject "papers", which is plural. So you need "represent".

The Federal papers: Plural, therefore represent is correct.

The Federal papers......represent.... is correct.
Also Notice papers is not written with capital "P" hence it is not a proper noun here it is a plural noun.

Hope it helps!
