I think E!
Products have been developed and that they have arrived on shelves, but it is quality that worries analysts.

What's wrong?

“The quality of products” is singular and hence the verb should be ‘worries”; “the Acme Corporation” is singular and hence the verb should be “has”; this is confirmed by the mention of ‘has lost’ in non-underlined part of the passage. Only D subscribes to this format.

The subject of "have developed" is the ACME Corporation (singular), the subject of "have arrived" is new products (plural) and the subject of "worry" is the quality (singular). Keeping this in mind:

(A) The quality of the new products that ACME Corporation have developed over the past year and that have recently arrived on retailers’ shelves worry - Incorrect. Should be has developed and worries.
(B) The quality of the new products that ACME Corporation has developed over the past year and that has recently arrived on retailers’ shelves worry - Incorrect. Should be have arrived and worries.
(C) The quality of the new products that ACME Corporation have developed over the past year and that has recently arrived on retailers’ shelves worry - Same as Option A
(D) The quality of the new products that ACME Corporation has developed over the past year and that have recently arrived on retailers’ shelves worries - Correct!
(E) The quality of the new products that ACME Corporation have developed over the past year and that have recently arrived on retailers’ shelves worries - Incorrect. Should be "has developed"

Hope this helps :)

For the subject 'ACME Corporation' , verb should be 'has' , For the subject 'products' , verb should be ' have'
For subject 'The quality of the new products', verb should be 'worries'

so D

Here the quality of the new products is the subject so should not there be "has" in "that have recently arrived on retailers' shelves". How can you say this being talked about products and not quality (singular). If I re-write this sentence by omitting the ACME corporation part, it will look like

The quality of the new products that has recently arrived on retailers' shelves worries.....


This makes more sense, here 'worries' verb confirms to the subject quality and "has" also confirms to the subject quality.

While "that have recently arrived on retailers' shelves worries" in same clause we are reffering have to products and then worries to quality?

Please let know what am I missing.

see this logically. "that have recently arrived on retailers’ shelves" - what have recently arrived? products or quality?
only 'products' make sense. that's why the subject is 'products' and verb should be 'have' and not 'has'.

Sub-verb.
QUALITY(Singular) Will carry the verb HAS, so we left with B and D.

The Products.. (Plural)........... So have
Left with only D

(A) The quality of the new products that ACME Corporation have developed over the past year and that have recently arrived on retailers’ shelves worry
(B) The quality of the new products that ACME Corporation has developed over the past year and that has recently arrived on retailers’ shelves worry
(C) The quality of the new products that ACME Corporation have developed over the past year and that has recently arrived on retailers’ shelves worry
(D) The quality of the new products that ACME Corporation has developed over the past year and that have recently arrived on retailers’ shelves worries
(E) The quality of the new products that ACME Corporation have developed over the past year and that have recently arrived on retailers’ shelves worries


This question is a classic example of the agreement (between subject and verb) error family. Note the telltale signs:

• A 3-2 split between the singular and plural forms of the same verb (“worry” in A/B/C vs. “worries” in D/E)

• Prepositional phrases to fill the sentence with several nouns, obscuring the true subject of the sentence

With agreement questions, once you have noticed one (or both) of these signals, your job becomes to identify the subject of the verb in question. Two strategies will help you in that pursuit: slash and burn (get rid of all unnecessary sentence elements) and logic. The most obvious Decision Point on the problem above is “worry” vs. “worries”; decide using slash and burn (and logic) what the subject is. By getting rid of all the modifiers, it is clear that “quality” is the subject for that verb and it makes sense (quality can logically worry), so answer choices A, B, and C are wrong. In your choice between answer choices D and E, there is only one Decision Point: “has developed” vs. “have developed.” Since the corporation is the subject (logically and grammatically) for that verb, it must be the singular “has developed.” Answer choice D is correct.

The quality of the new products that ACME Corporation have developed over the past year and that have recently arrived on retailers’ shelves worry many business analysts, who think that the company has lost focus under the new CEO’s leadership.

(A) The quality of the new products that ACME Corporation have developed over the past year and that have recently arrived on retailers’ shelves worry
(B) The quality of the new products that ACME Corporation has developed over the past year and that has recently arrived on retailers’ shelves worry
(C) The quality of the new products that ACME Corporation have developed over the past year and that has recently arrived on retailers’ shelves worry
(D) The quality of the new products that ACME Corporation has developed over the past year and that have recently arrived on retailers’ shelves worries
(E) The quality of the new products that ACME Corporation have developed over the past year and that have recently arrived on retailers’ shelves worries

The sentence has a subject verb agreement issue as the subject is the ACME and the verb that refer to the subject is have developed but ACME Corporation is singular and have is used to refer plural entity therefore the correct use should be ACME corporation:has developed.

The second have is referring to the products which is correct. The correct Answer is D

Easy question. My steps:

1) Find subject (quality). Singular
2) Skip prepositional phrase
3) Find a verb (worries). We have two choices left
4) Compare (D) and (E). ACME Corporation (singular), then - Has
