While searching for posts for this question I came across a brilliant post by Ron

If you are confused regarding one of the + plural+ verb rules


Both the options A and C use the correct verb form ARE

C) The effect of ocean white caps on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used to predict.

1. One of the Xs that/who <plural Verb>
2. One of the Xs <singular verb>
3. only One of the Xs that/who <plural>
4. The only One of the Xs that/who <singular>

Definitely C .

Explanation :

The effect of ocean white caps on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used to predict

"the effect" requires a singular verb - is .

"that " refers to "many aspects" and requires a plural verb - are .

IMO C.

I did not solve this question with any reason further than MEANING.

A. The global-warming effect of ocean white caps - meaning is nonsensical
B. The effect on global warming of ocean white caps - same as above
D. That ocean white caps have an effect on global warming - introduces unnecessary That clause which makes meaning unclear
E. That ocean white caps have an effect on global warming - same as above

@ sdas: you're absolutely right. MEANING is always the key for every SC questions.
I, however, used grammar to select the right one. Here my 2 cents.

The global-warming effect of ocean white caps are one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used for predicting how rising greenhouse gas concentrations could affect climate.

The global-warming effect is singular >>> must go with "is", not "are".
The use of "that" before environment is necessary to modify "aspects"
"aspects" is plural >>>> must go with "are".
"for predicting" is not good, right idiom is "to predict".

All thing considered, C is the best.
Hope it helps.

C fits in good,
The effect of X on global warming is one of the many "Z's" of the ocean environment that "are"...... to predict.
also "models" in all the options helps to indicate use of "are"

The global-warming effect of ocean white caps are one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used for predicting how rising greenhouse gas concentrations could affect climate.

A. The global-warming effect of ocean white caps are one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used for predicting --- Subject verb error and awkward construction.
B. The effect on global warming of ocean white caps are one of the many aspects of the ocean environment not yet incorporated in any detail into computer models, which they use to predict --- Subject verb error and pronoun ambiguity.
C. The effect of ocean white caps on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used to predict --- all good.
D. That ocean white caps have an effect on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment not yet having been incorporated in any detail into the computer models that are used for predicting --- having without comma always wrong on GMAT "noun, having -ed modifier blah blah" is on e of the acceptable forms; comma before or after (if opening phrase modifier) is necessary.
E. That ocean white caps have an effect on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment not yet being incorporated in any detail into computer models, which they use to predict[/quote]

The questions is measuring our skills of S-V-A & Modifier. now check the splits .

The global-warming effect of ocean white caps are one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used for predicting how rising greenhouse gas concentrations could affect climate


A. The global-warming effect of ocean white caps are one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used for predicting

B. The effect of ocean white caps on global warming are one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models, which they use to predict

C. The effect of ocean white caps on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment that are not yet incorporated in any detail into the computer models used to predict

D. That ocean white caps have an effect on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment not yet having been incorporated in any detail into the computer models used for predicting

E. That ocean white caps have an effect on global warming is one of the many aspects of the ocean environment not yet being incorporated in any detail into the computer models, which they use to predict
In options A & B The subject "The effect " is not agree to verb "are". Eliminated

The next split is between for+ predicting and to predict. These words are not preceded by comma. to+verb is used to if the action is done with a purpose where as for verb+ing is used to modify either a noun or a verb and denotes some relation to the entity it modifies. Here is a purpose to predict the affect of rising greenhouse gas concentrations on climate . So we can eliminate option D.
Now between E and C you can easily select option C as E has pronoun "they " without anticedent.

Can we also eliminate options (D) & (E) since they are using "ING" form (i.e., "not yet having been...", "not yet being..." right after the prepositional phrase (i.e., "many aspects of the ocean environment")? I read it somewhere that the structure "preposition + noun + ING" is wrong.
