Check *its* in non-underline part. It treats orchestra as singular. That means A cannot be the answer because of have

Please follow the rules while you post any answers on the forum.
Also provide some details regarding why you think the option is correct and remaining options are incorrect.
Your one word posts are anyway going to be deleted, so it is not helpful at all.

+1 for A.

(A) Bach and Handel to Bartok, appears to have --> Correct idiom "From X To Y", clear and concise meaning

(B) Bach, Handel, and Bartok, appears having

(C) Bach, Handel, and Bartok, appears that it has

(D) Bach and Handel to Bartok, appears that it has --> Unnecessary and awkward

(E) Bach and Handel as well as Bartok, appears to have


Hence, A.

In option A , 'to have' refers to singular subject orchestra, which is wrong.
D is wordy but correct.

Can you please clear the confusion with the usage of "has" or "have" with the subject "The local orchestra". Also, with the presence of "its" in the non-underlined part of the sentence, how to know what to use?

TIA.

1) "Appears to" is the correct idiom, and not "Appears that".
2) We don't say "Appears to has", but "Appears to have".
3) Repeating the "it" is unnecessary when the sentence can convey the intended meaning in much clear and concise manner without the "it".

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The idiom ‘from...to’ should be used here. That leaves A and D. There is no need to use the pronoun ‘it’ to repeat the subject. A is correct.

"The local orchestra" is singular subject. So the singular pronoun "its" is used. The verb "appears" is also singular (as against the use of "appear" - the plural verb).
In such cases, "appears" is usually followed by an adjective or a to-infinitive (to have here).
e.g. ... appears dull... or ... appears to have ...

Removing the non-essential modifier, we get
The local orchestra appears that it has ... (that clause is not correct here)

That said, we do follow appear with "that" when "it" is the subject.
Going by the ruling, it appears that reducing the rate is the only acceptable way of passing on the benefit.
It appears that if it will help Beltre with his decision, he can count on this ...
