As per my understanding, ' developed by the Ministry of Agriculture ' is an essential middle modifier starting with a past participle and modifying the immediatly preceeding noun i.e. dance.

Check the link which I have shared above.

Choice C, very clearly changes the meaning of the original sentence. If you look at the original sentence then you will find that it talks about a structure in the form 'The Sri-NuanSri-Nuan dance and Teut-Teung dance...along with others such as The Farmer's Dance'. But choice C simply omits 'along with others' and becomes more specific by using 'The Farmer's Dance' directly.

By the way nothing wrong grammatically with C, its just the change of the meaning which strikes it out.

I hope that helped.

The main issue is that the subject should be plural to match the plural verb constitute. Only E has 1 and 2 dances, which is what would go with constitute. C has two subjects so that would technically work, but it has another problem that you've pointed out.

'The Sri-NuanSri-Nuan and Teut-Teung dances'

You need another THE in front of the Teut- teung to consider the plural wording dances.....

I dont understand. I doubt this question.

It is intended in the construction -

Consider the following the sentences -

Ram is stronger than I (correct) (here 'am' is intended)
Ram is stronger than I am (also correct)

In the option E the plural 'dances' clears the confusion that we are talking about two different dances.
Please correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks.

This example of sentence correction, more than grammar, relies on the principles of 'meaning'.

Please remember that the F Dance is an example of the songs developed by the Ministry of Agriculture. IMO it is not the combination of just three dances alone that constitutes the dramatic art form. It is the combination of the two cultural dances and other dances developed by Ministry Agriculture, the F dance being just one of those.

A. The Sri-NuanSri-Nuan dance and Teut-Teung dance are an inherent part of Thai culture, and along with others such as The Farmer's Dance, developed by the Ministry of agriculture, constitutes the main dramatic art form of Thailand -- SV error

B. The Sri-NuanSri-Nuan dance as well as Teut-Teung dance are an inherent part of Thai culture, and along with others such as The Farmer's Dance, developed by the Ministry of agriculture, constitute the main dramatic art form of Thailand --- when as well as is part of the subject, the verb must agree with the noun before as well as.—are is wrong verb

C. The Sri-NuanSri-Nuan dance and Teut-Teung dance are an inherent part of Thai culture, and along with The Farmer's Dance, developed by the Ministry of agriculture, constitute the main dramatic art form of Thailand -- There is a meaning shift from dances developed by Ministry of Agriculture to the F dance developed by the ministry.

D. An inherent part of Thai culture, the Sri-NuanSri-Nuan, Teut-Teung as well as other dances such as The Farmer's Dance, developed by the Ministry of agriculture, constitute the main Thai dramatic art form -- Sri-NuanSri-Nuan, Teut-Teung as well as other dances – is breach of grammar since the first two types are two different dances there should be an and between them; otherwise, parallelism will be the casualty, In addition, ‘an inherent part’ of Thai culture seems to modify all the types of dances; this leads to wrong meaning.

E. The Sri-NuanSri-Nuan and Teut-Teung dances, both inherent parts of Thai culture, and a dance developed by the Ministry of Agriculture named The Farmer's Dance, constitute, along with others, the main dramatic art form of Thailand –---- material shift in meaning. The combination should be the N dance, the T dance and along with such dances developed by the MOA such as the F dance and not the N dance, the T dance and the F dance along with others – There is also a lingering doubt whether the Ministry itself is named after the F dance
To me, none too is satisfactory; in a way, we may accept, E as the best of the worst, since there is at least no grammar error.

In A,B and C....subject is missing in the second independent clause introduced by "fanboy and"

D is changing the meaning of sentence

E,though not perfect, is the best choice among all five.

Hi,

I selected C. There is no grammar error and the meaning is conveyed precisely IMO.

It is little tricky since as per option E:"and a dance developed by the Ministry of Agriculture named The Farmer's Dance, constitute, along with others, the main dramatic art form of Thailand"

A dance-> constitute? This is a grammatical error right?

Dom.

An inherent part of Thai culture, the Sri-NuanSri-Nuan, Teut-Teung as well as other dances such as The Farmer's Dance, developed by the Ministry of agriculture, constitute the main Thai dramatic art form -- Sri-NuanSri-Nuan, Teut-Teung as well as other dances – is breach of grammar since the first two types are two different dances there should be an and between them; otherwise, parallelism will be the casualty, In addition, ‘an inherent part’ of Thai culture seems to modify all the types of dances; this leads to wrong meaning.

E. The Sri-NuanSri-Nuan and Teut-Teung dances, both inherent parts of Thai culture, and a dance developed by the Ministry of Agriculture named The Farmer's Dance, constitute, along with others, the main dramatic art form of Thailand –---- material shift in meaning. The combination should be the N dance, the T dance and along with such dances developed by the MOA such as the F dance and not the N dance, the T dance and the F dance along with others – There is also a lingering doubt whether the Ministry itself is named after the F dance
To me, none too is satisfactory; in a way, we may accept, E as the best of the worst, since there is at least no grammar error.

Why A and B are wrong for "are" ?
constitutes in A is incorrect
