Subject Verb agreement - "The significant number of......lends" (singular)

A & D are out.

B & C are wrong in meaning.

E is correct choice.

Thanks,

and

weekend hours accumulated by many employees in order to compensate for overly optimistic deadlines

isn't this a plural subject (A and B type) ?
