B,C and D are out --SV agreement ..
between A and D --D is run on , meaning changed and construction is quite awkward

A wins

The subject is singular "The Macabre nature of Macbeth" so the verb "has" is actually fine. The sentence has a weird flow to it but it is nonetheless fine.

isn't it right to say 'dare to do'...?

Hi jokschmer ,

It is okay to use "dare" followed by a verb.

Both the below forms are correct usage of dare:

He wouldn't dare look up while she was watching him.

I dare to hope that she will respect me."

Two things are tested here:
1. A, together with B - takes a singular verb - this rules out B, C and D
2. 'so X that Y' is the correct idiomatic usage
Hence, A

The macabre nature of Macbeth,together with the widespread belief that real-life tragedies have accompanied many productions,has made the name of the play so dreaded that not even the least superstitious members of most casts dare utter it.

Option A is correct
Options B,C and D are out because of S-V agreement error.
In E, 'is dreaded' is wrong.

Press kudos if it helps :-)
